Second Star to the Left and Straight On 'Til . . . a Steampunk Twist on Peter Pan: Everland

This week we have a special double feature—narrators Fiona Hardingham and Steve West take us Behind the Mic with EVERLAND — the narrator duo alternate chapters between the points of view of Gwen and Hook. Described as a steampunk homage to PETER PAN, this is an audiobook you don’t want to miss.

“It is an unexpected story. It’s very dark and twisted.”—Narrator Fiona Hardingham

Scholastic Audiobooks

From J.M. Barrie’s original PETER AND WENDY from 1911 through the many iterations of stage and film, Peter Pan, Wendy, the Lost Boys, and Captain Hook are always captivating. EVERLAND gives it a steampunk fantasy twist, but also includes the historical setting of postwar London. Fiona and Steve give listeners a treat with the many characters and their accents. Teens and families have a fun listen ahead, and during the week of June 7-14, EVERLAND is a featured AudobookSYNC title—FREE to download, for this week only.

Both Steve West and Fiona Hardingham have many fabulous audiobook titles to explore. Steve’s audiography includes several other YA titles including  Laini Taylor’s STRANGE THE DREAMER and Megan Whalen Turner’s THICK AS THIEVES. In fiction, he just completed Michael Ondaatje’s WARLIGHT, and you’ll also find plenty of romance, as well as classics and mystery.

Fiona’s audio performances include other dual narrations with Steve, like AN EMBER IN THE ASHES; single and ensemble performances of many YA titles like Kiersten White’s AND I DARKEN and THE DARK DAYS CLUB; and fiction titles by Jojo Moyes and Sophie Kinsella.

We must include a side note, for anyone seeking an original version of PETER PAN, this version by Samuel West can’t be beat.
