Description

Journey back to Neverland in the first-ever authorized sequel to J.M. Barrie's timeless masterpiece, Peter Pan The Special Trustees of Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, who own the copyright to the movie Peter Pan, marked that work's centenary by authorizing the creation of a new novel that would share the same characters as the original, and bring as much pleasure to children and adults around the world as Peter Pan has done. The result of a worldwide search to find just the right author for this special sequel is this - Peter Pan in Scarlet by the renowned and multi-award winning Geraldine McCaughrean. Set in the 1930s when the devastating effects of World War I are still resonating throughout the world, Peter Pan in Scarlet sets listeners on an unforgettable journey fraught with danger. All is not well. Dreams - nightmares - are leaking out of Neverland as it chafes against the Here and Now, wearing holes in the fabric in between. Somehow Time is moving on where Time was never meant to. Fearing for Peter Pan's life, Wendy and the Lost Boys find their way back to Neverland - with the help of the fairy, Fireflyer - only to discover adventure waiting in ambush and their worst nightmare coming true in the most unexpected of ways!

Professional reviews

"Geraldine McCaughrean's gorgeously wrought sequel to J.M. Barrie's PETER PAN opens as Wendy and company return to Neverland and find it changed, fading and autumnal. Along with familiar characters, listeners meet fairy Fireflyer, who's desperately proud of being a whopping liar, and the enigmatic (and sinister?) circus master Ravello in his great woolen garment. Tim Curry is understated, subtle but not subdued, and his care highlights McCaughrean's wordsmithing and lets her storytelling shine. Curry clearly relishes Ravello's mysterious tones as well as Peter's jubilant "Cock-a doodle-dooooo!", and he narrates the rest with wonder, joy, or menace as appropriate. Listeners of all ages will find this to be a splendid, timeless adventure. J.M.D. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, AudioFile Best Audiobook of 2007 (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
