Peter Pan in Scarlet (2006) is a novel by British author Geraldine McCaughrean. It is marketed as the "official sequel" to J. M. Barrie's Peter and Wendy (1911), as it was authorised by Great Ormond Street Hospital, which was granted all rights to the characters and original writings by Barrie in 1929.

McCaughrean also tucks in a band of humorously disaffected adolescents dubbed "Roarers," deft literary allusions from Barrie and other writers, reunions that range from tearful to shocking and (inevitably) a sequel-ready conclusion. Worthy homage, all in all, as well as a strong, poignant tale in its own right. Silhouette illustrations à la Arthur Rackham's for Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens (1906) not seen.

Very disappointing. I read PETER PAN IN SCARLET the same week it came out. I tried to like this book. I had to keep putting it down then picking it up and forcing myself to finish it. I'm not sure it was a good idea for the author to try to replicate Barrie's style so much. Some of her quips are clever. However, it comes across as a "rip-off" of J. M.. The "pressure from GOSH" to produce an authorized sequel is quite evident in this endeavor. The characters in this book, although familiar to everyone, have lost their charm and appeal. Based on her previous reputation and awards, I am sure that the author's original children's books are fine. This one is clearly aimed at young children. The original is geared more towards a mature reader who can reflect on the magic of childhood. That is why Peter Pan has always been a multi-generational experience, one to be shared by parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle with their children. It's the story of lost childhood...a place to which we can never return. This slight melancholy is the thread that binds the original story together. There is just no depth to this story. The theme of "clothes make the man" seems so superficial by comparison. With the rights to PETER PAN now in public domain I hope that in the future there will be better new adventures for the boy who never grew up.

I read the first few chapters of this, and found them delightful, so I started over, this time reading the book aloud to my kids. We all laughed our heads off over the story of how and why the Darlings returned to Neverland. Just brilliant. The kids also loved the new fairy, Fireflyer, who is hilarious from birth. But things kind of went downhill once we arrived in Neverland. We discovered that things are not right in Neverland, and Peter is not himself. That's the whole premise of the story - the cause of the change must be discovered and things must be put right. But it's kind of a bad choice of a premise, because it means that for nearly the entire book, we have a Peter Pan is isn't very Peter Panish, and a Neverland that isn't very Neverlandy. An awful lot of it is basically grim and grown-up, though bits of humor keep popping up. Yes, we tie up some loose ends, but wanting all the loose ends tied up is such a grown up preoccupation. It hardly belongs in Neverland, where loose ends are simply abandoned in piles on the floor the moment a new adventure beckons.

Anyway, the good bits of this are so good that fans of Pan should by all means read the book, but there is also much here that is far too heavy and sluggish to fly in Neverland.

I am a huge fan of Peter Pan, to the point where I am buying any book that touches on the subject. So of course I grabbed the authorized sequel to the original. And wow was I bored and upset at the result. Maybe it is just me, but by the time I was halfway through the book I felt the need to put it down and come back weeks later to finish it. I was disappointed and I am not sure why or how to even explain it. Maybe because Peter Pan was about never growing old, exploring your dreams and hopes forever, and having adventure. This book is about growing up, nightmares, betray and death.
Sorry, but that seems a tad off. And that's why it has so few stars. In the end I just did not enjoy it!

Peter Pan in Scarlet is one of the greatest installments to the legend of Peter Pan! With other adaptions like "Peter and the Starcatchers series", "Hook", and the 2003-film "Peter Pan", we finally get a "true" installment that remains true to the original story and is even an authorized sequel that carries on the legacy of the greatest hero, who will never die and never grow old!

Children and grown ups will be loving every page and chapter to this amazing novel!

I wasn't sure I would enjoy this children's book as Peter Pan was a favorite of mine, however I found this sequel to be delightful. What I enjoyed most about the book was that Geraldine McCaughrean's writing style was very similar to Barrie's. Therefore the characters of Peter Pan and Wendy stayed fairly true to the original. Even the grown-up boys, that become children again in this tale, are portrayed close to the characters of the original Peter Pan. This book would be a wonderful 'read aloud' bedtime story for school age children.

The first and only authorized sequel to Peter Pan. I enjoyed this book, though probably would have preferred to be reading it aloud to a 5-8 year old child. The writing is terrific, and the story moves right along. There are plenty of references that only adults will understand, and this makes the book more readable. Children should enjoy the story, whether or not they know the original (book, rather than film). I'd give it to a good reader aged between 8-11.

I find this sequel to be loyal to the whimsy of the first story furthermore the development of each character and the darker turn are important for a story who get butchered by film houses often
Very satisfied!
