Description

Neverland is calling again...Something is wrong in Neverland. Dreams are leaking out-strangely real dreams, of pirates and mermaids, of war paint 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. This new version brings the adventure to new life with full colour illustrations throughout by David Wyatt, and a new version of the text by Geraldine McCaughrean, to make the story accessible to younger readers. A beautiful book to share and to treasure.show more

Review quote

[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; the result is a little masterpiece.
