Congratulations to our Sweepstakes winner Rebecca J. and thank you to everyone who entered our giveaway.

Second star to the right, and straight on till morning. But, maybe there’s a different way to get to Neverland?

Disney Book Group has released the latest book from the A Twisted Tale Series, Straight on Till Morning by Liz Braswell, which is a twist on the classic story of Peter Pan and Wendy. Inside The Magic is excited to again partner with Disney Book Group and offer one lucky reader a copy of the new book plus a Tinker bell deluxe print from the Disney store!

Straight On Till Morning Twisted Tale Series

So, what’s this new book about?

Straight on Till Morning gives a new twist to the 1953 Walt Disney Studio Classic film, Peter Pan. While the book includes all our favorite characters including Peter and Wendy from the original movie, Straight on Till Morning takes place four years after the scene in the movie when Peter Pan visits London and loses his shadow. And while John and Michael have outgrown the idea of Peter Pan, Wendy is still quite enamored with the boy who never grew up and wonders when Peter will return for his lost shadow.

Wendy, who is now sixteen, continues to dream and holds on to the childhood hope that Peter‘s magical home, Never Land, truly exists. So, when an opportunity to travel to Never Land by Captain Hook’s pirate ship presents itself, Wendy is excited for her real escape from her doldrum life. 

But to Wendy‘s horror, life in Never Land isn’t everything she imagined. When Captain Hook reveals some rather permanent and evil plans for Never Land, it’s up to her and everyone’s favorite fairy, Tinker Bell, to save Peter.

Who would love reading this book?

Straight on Till Morning is targeted for young readers ages 12 – 17. My 12-year-old daughter, who has already read a majority of the books in the A Twisted Tales series, was excited to get her hands on the new book. She loved to watch Peter Pan, the movie as a young child and she was anxious to see what twist was in store for Peter and Wendy plus Tinker Bell, the Lost Boys, and all the other beloved characters from the original film.

Although Straight on Till Morning didn’t replace her favorite book in the Twisted Tale series, the story was one she enjoyed reading and will recommend to other fans of the series. I personally enjoyed reading the book too and the development of Wendy’s character and the journey she embarks upon.
