Sequel to Peter Pan

Great Ormond Street Hospital has authorized a sequel to J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan stories.
Award-winning 53-year-old [Geraldine ]McCaughrean was hand-picked to pen the tale.

Her winning story -- entitled "Captain Pan" -- was announced Sunday at the London International Book Fair in Olympia, west London.

She said: "It is an astonishing, daunting privilege to be let loose in Neverland, armed with nothing but a pen, and knowing I'm walking in Barrie's revered footprints.
