Book list: Peter Pan retellings

With JM Barrie’s Peter Pan having recently entered the public domain, all manner of retellings have been cropping up about the place. Having just read Never After by Dan Elconin, I thought I might put together a list of Peter Pan retellings to go with our other fairytale retelling reading lists. As always, feel free to leave any suggestions for additional books in the comments section below.

Never After by Dan Elconin (see our review)

There is no place like a dysfunctional home. Leaving everything behind for the Island was Ricky’s dream come true. When his happily ever after is not quite what it seems, he discovers that running away means running toward bigger problems. Trapped on the Island, Ricky must join together with the only people he can trust to help him face his fears and return home. But the only way off the Island is to confront the person who trapped Ricky and his friends in the first place. With countless enemies and true peril staring them down, Ricky’s mission to leave this so-called paradise will become a battle for their very lives.

Soon Wendy and John discover that the legend is real—when they recite from its pages and descend into a snaking realm beneath the Manhattan school.

Tigerheart by Peter David

Paul Dear is a good and clever boy, but he’s special in ways that even his adoring parents could never have imagined. For by day, in London’s Kensington Gardens, he walks and talks with the pixies and sprites and other magical creatures that dwell among the living–but are unseen by most. Then everything changes when tragedy strikes–and a quest begins that will lead Paul to a curio shop where a magical ally awaits him and launches him into the starry skies, bound for a realm where anything is possible. Far from home, Paul will run with fierce Indian warriors, cross swords with fearsome pirates, befriend a magnificent white tiger, and soar beside an extraordinary, ageless boy who reigns in a boundless world of imagination.

Capt Hook by JV Hart

With his long black curls, a shadowy family tree, and an affinity for pet spiders, James Matthew bears little resemblance to his starched-collar, blue-blooded peers at Eton. Dubbed King Jas., he stops at nothing to become the most notorious underclassman in the prestigious school’s history. For James, sword fighting, falling in love with an Ottoman Sultana, and challenging the Queen of England are all in a day’s skullduggery. But when he sets sail on a ship with a mysterious mission, King Jas.’ dream of discovering a magical island quickly turns into an unimaginable nightmare.

Before Peter Pan belonged to Wendy, he belonged to the girl with the crow feather in her hair. . . . Fifteen-year-old Tiger Lily doesn’t believe in love stories or happy endings. Then she meets the alluring teenage Peter Pan in the forbidden woods of Neverland and immediately falls under his spell. Peter is unlike anyone she’s ever known. Impetuous and brave, he both scares and enthralls her. As the leader of the Lost Boys, the most fearsome of Neverland’s inhabitants, Peter is an unthinkable match for Tiger Lily. Soon, she is risking everything–her family, her future–to be with him. When she is faced with marriage to a terrible man in her own tribe, she must choose between the life she’s always known and running away to an uncertain future with Peter. With enemies threatening to tear them apart, the lovers seem doomed. But it’s the arrival of Wendy Darling, an English girl who’s everything Tiger Lily is not, that leads Tiger Lily to discover that the most dangerous enemies can live inside even the most loyal and loving heart.

  1. Awesome list! Thanks for sharing. I really want to read Hook and Jill and Tiger Lily. Might have to check some of the others out too!

    • Stephanie /

      My pleasure, Belle! There are definitely a few I plan to check out on here :)

  2. I heart this post. Peter Pan is one of my favorite books and I love retellings. I’ll be revisiting this list quite often for reading suggestions. Thanks!

      My pleasure, Kara! I’m a fan of Peter Pan, too, and had no idea there were so many retellings going around.

  3. The only Peter Pan retelling I’d ever heard of before reading this was Tiger Lily and I’ve been dying to read it for a while now, but a lot the books on this list look really interesting. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to read them, thanks for sharing :)

  4. I love it when you do these types of posts, I add them all to my to read pile! :)

  5. I hate to admit this but I hate Peter Pan. I disliked the original book and I’m not too keen on the story either. I know that makes me a bit of a literary pariah, but I felt I had to come clean. (Lost Girls sounds pretty interesting, though).

    • Stephanie /

      Not at all, Ryan! I find it quite a chilling story, actually. I’m currently rereading a lot of the books from my childhood, and to be honest, I’m surprised by how terrifying/creepy many of these books are.
