The Lovereading4Kids comment

At last a sequel to one of the most endearing classics of all time. The author chosen to undertake this literary feat is not a household name but she is, a supremely talented storyteller and a winner of virtually every book award. The quality of her writing is breath-taking and she quickly transports you into the world of Neverland that you will remember from Peter Pan, whilst at the same time introduces you to some wonderful new characters, who together with Pan, with Wendy and the lost boys undertake some joyous, magical and fantastical adventures. Parent and child will enjoy it with equal enthusiasm but if you haven’t read Peter Pan for a while then why not read that first. We’re offering free copies of Peter Pan to everyone who orders Peter Pan in Scarlet.

Synopsis

Peter Pan In Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean

Neverland is calling again, something is wrong in Neverland. Dreams are leaking out-strangely real dreams, of pirates and mermaids, of warpaint and crocodiles. For Wendy and the Lost Boys it is a clear signal-Peter Pan needs their help, and so it is time to do the unthinkable and fly to Neverland again. But back in Neverland, everything has changed-and the dangers they find there are far beyond their dreams. Specially commissioned by Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children as the winner of their competition to write the official sequel to J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan, Peter Pan in Scarlet is a thrilling adventure that you will never forget. Proceeds from every copy sold will go to benefit Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.

Anne Fine on Geraldine McCaughrean:

'I reckon Geraldine McCaughrean knocks the socks off every other children's writer today. Everything she does is different and everything works – look at her list of prizes. She must write in tremendous bursts. Some years, she's so prolific the rest of us start joking that the fairies come in at night to do her work for her. Then she'll go quiet, so unlike all those writers who are persuaded by their publishers to come up with something every year, no matter how tired or drab. If Geraldine has nothing fresh to write, she doesn't write it.' (The Guardian)
