Peter Pan first appeared in 1902 as part of "The Little White Bird," a novel for adults. The popularity of this character prompted Barrie to develop it as a children's story, "Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens," published in 1906, and adapt it as a play ("Peter Pan," which opened in 1904). The success of the play led Barrie to expand the story as a novel ("Peter and Wendy," 1911), which is the version best known today..
