McCaughrean to write Peter Pan sequel

Geraldine McCaughrean has been chosen to write the sequel to JM Barrie's Peter Pan, reports BBC News.

Great Ormond Street hospital, which holds the Peter Pan copyright, invited authors to put themselves forward for the chance to write the sequel, with a panel of experts selecting the winner.
Londoner McCaughrean, 53, has won the Whitbread Children's Book of the Year three times for reinterpreting classics such as Noah's Ark, Moby Dick and The Canterbury Tales for younger readers.
