Peter Pan in Scarlet, and Other New TItles

We have just ordered the authorized Peter Pan sequel, Peter Pan in Scarlet. The author, Geraldine McCaughrean, was selected by Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children, which holds J. M. Barrie's original copyright, to write this sequel. It will be interesting to see how well it works for those of us who have Peter Pan written deep in our childhood memories.

That's the top of the news from the Just Added to the Database list, but there are lots of other delicious titles. This time we left in a larger number of picture books in the list, for their engaging covers (e.g. Babies in the Bayou); and continue to try to exclude the inaccessible Southside Library items. There's a new biography of Charles Bukowski by Barry Miles; the 75th anniversary edition of The Joy of Cooking (!!!); new novels by James Houston and Matt Rees ; The Gum-Chewing Rattler, a new one from Joe Hayes (!!!) ; and hundreds more.

Most of the other What's New Lists, and the Large Print Titles list, have been updated also. They are always available from the top page of the catalog.
