In hierdie storie hou sy redelik naby aan die atmosfeer en verteltrant van die oorspronklike werk. Natuurlik is Peter nog net soos hy was, avontuurlik en vry, maar die meisie wat hy diť keer na die Nimmerland met hom saamneem, is ietwat anders as die moederlike Wendy.

Hy soek Peter se ore vir sy versameling. En daar is dinosaurusse wat die eiland wil oorneem …
