The Little White Bird is a series of short episodes, narratives and day-to-day accounts of J M Barrie's life in London. The tone oscillates from whimsical to social comedy to darkly aggressive. Part of the book's continuing popularity was due to the couple of softer chapters telling the story of Peter Pan, later to become the hero of Barrie's most famous work.
