Publisher's Summary

This is the first-ever authorized sequel to J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan!

Set in the 1930s, when the devastating effects of World War I are still resonating throughout the world, Peter Pan in Scarlet takes listeners on an unforgettable journey fraught with danger. All is not well. Dreams and 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 go. 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 nightmares coming true in the most unexpected ways!

The Special Trustees of Great Ormand Street Hospital for Children, who own the copyright to 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 has Peter Pan. The result of a worldwide search to find just the right author for this special sequel is Peter Pan in Scarlet by the renowned and multi-award-winning Geraldine McCaughrean.

    Story
    "Mr. Curry is a better narrator then I imagined."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Peter Pan in Scarlet to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book.


    Have you listened to any of Tim Curry’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have heard a Christmas carol, I think he did well with both.

    "A Dark and Unpleasant Take On Neverland"

    While some of the story elements were charming or interesting, the whole story was disappointing. It was disjointed and strange, but not in a fun way. The author clearly does not like or understand children. It was like "Peter Pan" meets "Lord of the Flies". Peter Pan is an unpleasant bully here, and too much real life (war, environmental poison) intrude on Neverland. Not for children, but not for adults either, this story was pretty unsatisfying. Well read by Tim Curry though.
