Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean

This book is the first ever official sequel of Peter Pan and Wendy. The Lost Boys and Wendy are now all grown up and have left Neverland. But they keep having strange dreams about it. So they decide to go back to Neverland, they catch a fairy called Firefly who tells the worst lies ever.

To make themselves children again, as only children can go to Neverland they all get there children's clothes and dress up in them, this makes them young again. Some problems occur during this process, Slightly doesn't have any children and Tootles only has daughters. So Tootles turns into a girl!

When they reach Neverland everything has changed there are no Lost Boys as Peter turned them all out for becoming adults and he's living in the Wendy House which is now on one of the branches of the tree.

Peter and the Lost Boys who came back decide to go on a quest to find Hook's treasure. A lot of things go wrong on the way -from being attacked by pirates to going to the maze of witches. This is an excellent book and I really enjoyed it. I give it an 8 out of 10.
