Peter Pan is the well-known main character from the story ''Peter Pan'' by J.M. Barrie. He's a magical boy who can fly and never grows up. In the original story, he takes three children (Wendy, John and Michael Darling) from London into Neverland. His archenemy is the villain Captain Hook.

In The Land of Stories series, Alex and Conner arrive inside the Peter Pan story just before Peter meets Wendy, John and Michael. Peter was "late" because he was looking for his friend Tinker Bell. They quickly conclude that Lloyd must have captured her. In order to save her, Peter agrees to take Alex, Conner, Mother Goose, Lester, Red and the Tin Woodman to Neverland.

4. Beyond the Kingdoms
Peter takes the twins and their friends to Neverland. There, they arrive just in time to see Lloyd disappear into another book with Captain Hook, his pirate crew and ship the Jolly Roger and their captive, Tinker Bell. The book itself sinks to the bottom of the bay.
Peter leads them to the Mermaids, with whom Alex and Conner negotiate a trade. They will get the book for them if the Lost Boys stop fishing in their waters. The book is Alice in Wonderland. Red stays behind and Peter travels with them into the book.
Alex, Conner, Mother Goose, Lester, the Tin Woodman and Peter Pan travel into Wonderland. Peter saves them from drinking the "shrinking potion" from Alice's story, which turns out to be poison left by Lloyd. Later, they split up to cover more ground, and Peter joins Conner and the Tin Woodman to gather their other friends guarding the books they already used to travel. They are tricked by Lloyd and thrown into another book instead; and suddenly find themselves in Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest.
They are captured by Robin Hood, who releases them as they save him from the Sheriff of Nottingham, and Peter helps Conner make the Portal Potion. By the end of Beyond the Kingdoms, he is in the Land of Stories with Alex and Conner as they make plans to stop Lloyd once and for all.
5. An Author's Odyssey
Peter flew out of the woods on Jack's third whistle, as part of the rescue mission for the royals. Trollbella is smitten with him but he doesn't notice (or care). He and others take the royals to their hideout, the Abandoned Dwarf Mines.
Afterwards, Peter went into the Otherworld with Red, The Lost Boys, Robin Hood and the Merry Men, Lester, Clawdius and many others to supervise Conner's characters (Auburn Sally, Admiral Jacobson and their crew, and The Cyborgs). There, all of them are caught in Saint Andrew Children's Hospital new children's room by Charlotte's colleague, Dr. Sharon Jackson. Charlotte hastily lies and says they are actors, forcing them to come up with a play for the sick children.
Later on, Peter and others witness Goldilocks going into labor in the hospital. The Masked Man invades the hospital holding Bree, Emmerich and Cornelia hostage. He takes Charlotte, Goldilocks and Emmerich away, leaving Peter and the others tied up on the floor of the Hospital.
