Any review I write will be incredibly biased by nostalgia because it was one of the first series I found on my own and enjoyed enough to reread several times. I suppose I’ll leave it at this: this book is really quite fantastic and you should definitely read it if you get the chance!

Do you ever wonder what happens in the Magic Kingdom when the park officially closes to guests?
This is a fun book based on that idea.
It is a quick midgrade read. On the same levels as Percy Jackson for adventure and fun!
Run around the parks with the kids and try to solve the mystery behind the scenes of Walt Disney World.
This is a must own book :)

Awesome origin story for Peter Pan! I liked that he was not born magical, but was just a common boy having uncommon adventures. The romance between Peter and Molly felt a little forced though. IDK, remembering how I operated when I was 12, and not knowing how old Peter actually is... it was a little awkward. They were cute together though. The loyalty of Peter's friends was great. I liked that (even though I kept mixing up their names) the boys were not simply generic friends but each had a clearly delineated personality. Alf: I wish he was a good guy because he's so clever! Black Stache: It's cool to know who Hook was before he was Hook. Fighting Prawn: So bitter, but so interesting!
Good book for late elementary school and middle school kids. I jumped on the bandwagon a little late, but I obviously still enjoyed it. The writing was acceptable. It did some things that peeve me, though- sometimes the same adjective would be used to describe the same thing more than once within the same paragraph, and the edition I read had quite a few typos and missing punctuation marks in it. But I love it for the plot, setting, and characters.
