Barrie's publisher Hodder & Stoughton decided to capitalize on the popularity of the play and released this separate version which was geared towards children.

His Norse myths are abridged from a work by Paul Henri Mallet (1730–1807) , a professor at Geneva, translated by Bishop Thomas Percy as Northern Antiquities (London, 1770, often reprinted). The Bulfinch version of myth, published for genteel Americans just as the first studies of mythography were appearing in Germany, presents the myths in their literary versions, without unnecessary violence, sex, psychology or ethnographic information. Bulfinch's versions of these myths are still being taught in many American public schools. Marie Sally Cleary, in The Bulfinch Solution: Teaching the Ancient Classics in American Schools (1990) , sets the book in the context of "democratizing" classical culture for a wider American antebellum readership.".

Udi in a discussion of legendary stories from Iran, India, and Greece, as the Persian Hazar afsana, “A Thousand Tales, ” “called by the people ‘A Thousand Nights’. ” In 987 Ibn al-Nadim adds that Abu Abdus al-Jahshiyari began a collection of 1,000 popular Arabic, Iranian, Greek, and other tales but died (942) when only 480 were written. It is clear that the expressions “A Thousand Tales” and “A Thousand and One…” were intended merely to indicate a large number and were taken literally only later, when stories were added to make up the number."
