We are listening to Peter Pan in Scarlet, read by Tim Curry, in the mornings before school. Am I the only one who thinks Tim Curry WAS a pirate in a previous life? I think I could listen to him read this stuff all day, about "proper swords" and the "sea of Zig-Zag." The producers of Pirates of the Caribbean should have found something for him to do, I think. You can tell he loves his job.
And who is this Geraldine McCaughrean anyway? I'm usually really leery of people trying to write sequels to most anything in the canon, and she has not only written a spectacular successor, but made it her own. A real feat.
