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.'
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.
