New Peter Pan Author

Ok, a short while ago I posted about the intended sequel for Peter and Wendy by J. M. Barrie. If you missed that post about my thoughts on the whole idea, it’s Here. It’s a rather long rant, just so you know.

Anyway, the author has been announced. Her name is Geraldine McCaughrean. She has written a large number of books, many of them for children. Many of them are focused on mythology. I don’t recognize her name, but she has apparently won a number of awards for her children’s books. I plan to go check out some of her work (probably starting with her award-winners) and I’ll post about what I think!

The working title of the book is Captain Pan, which I don’t like very much, and I know that Captain Hook is a character in it, which will involve some interesting reworking of the end of Peter and Wendy when the crocodile gets him. We’ll see what she comes up with. I hope that she does well, but I am still very nervious about it. I’ll let you all know what I find!
