Which novel opens with the line, “All children, except one, grow up”?
Answer: Peter Pan is J. M. Barrie’s most famous work, in the form of a 1904 play and a 1911 novel. Both versions tell the story of Peter Pan, a mischievous yet innocent little boy who can fly, and has many adventures on the island of Neverland. The novel begins with the classic opening line, “All children, except one, grow up.” Since the Scottish author published the novel in 1911 it has become a children’s classic. In 1929, Barrie gave the copyright of the Peter Pan works to Great Ormond Street Hospital, a children’s hospital in London.
