The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a lush, illustrated gift edition of Geraldine McCaughrean’s official sequel to Peter Pan that was such a huge bestseller when it first came out in both hardback and paperback. The text in this special edition has been specially adapted for younger readers and has astonishing full-colour art throughout by the incredibly talented David Wyatt. It’s a thrilling adventure and one that no child should miss out on in childhood. Published with the full support of Great Ormond Street Hospital and every copy sold benefits them. Peter Pan in Scarlet is also available in non-illustrated versions in both paperback and in hardback. The companion edition of Peter Pan is also available in both paperback and hardback.

A message from Geraldine McCaughrean:

'David's artwork never fails to astonish me. he is such a perfectionist, and yet his imagination is over brimming with original fantastical ideas. he doesn't just draw what the words say: he always brings to the page some joke, some idea, some surprise that is all his own.'

A message from Great ormond Street Hospital:

'We are delighted that J M Barrie's characters and Geraldine McCaughrean's words have been captured so imaginatively in David Wyatt's illustrations and that this edition will continue Barrie's literary legacy that will help patients in the future.'

Synopsis

Peter Pan In Scarlet (Illustrated Edition) 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.

Reviews

[Praise for the novel, Peter Pan in Scarlet]: 'It's about adventure and bravery and cowardice and aching poignancy - and in this book McCaughrean has captured the lot. THE DAILY EXPRESS The official sequel to Peter Pan needs to be an exceptional book, and that's exactly what we have in Peter Pan in Scarlet... What McCaughrean has done is nothing short of miraculous. It's enough to make you believe in fairies. PHILIP ARDAGH, THE GUARDIAN a spectacularly impressive work THE RADIO TIMES it's hard to see how she could have done it better. THE INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY By some mysterious process of osmosis, she has brilliantly mixed Barrie's preoccupations with her own, aping his engaging style but also adding to it

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)
