House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

The Life of Barrie

(Photo of Barrie as Captain Hook playing with Michael as Peter Pan)
I requested the book J.M. Barrie ~ The Man Behind the Image by Janet Dunbar from my local library after seeing the movie Finding Neverland (starring Johnny Depp and Kate Winslow) this past summer. It just arrived.

I picked it up today and read eight chapters while my girls danced at the dance studio. Reviewers are right. Janet Dunbar's writing is smooth and delightful; the book is very interesting.

I recommend checking out J.M. Barrie's official website. It offers original photos, letters, and notebooks.
