- “All it takes is faith and trust. Oh! And something I forgot: Dust.”
- ―Peter Pan[src]
In Fairy Dust and the Quest for the Egg (2005), when Mother Dove's egg broke, he slowly got older like the other residents of Never Land. He lost all his baby teeth and grew a few feet taller, when the egg was restored he turned back to normal.
In The Trouble With Tink (2006), Peter Pan pretended to mistake Tinker Bell and Terence for butterflies and made as if he were going to catch them and put them in his butterfly collection. Peter thought the prank was extremely funny, but neither Tink nor Terence shared the sentiment. However, giving back Tinker Bell's spare hammer made her think much more fondly of him again, and she promised to visit him again. According to the book, Peter has "the eagerness of a puppy, the cleverness of a fox, and the freedom of a lark - all rolled into one spry, redheaded boy."
In Tink, North of Never Land (2007), when he was playing with the Lost Boys he spotted Tinker Bell. Tink then helped looking for Tootles, when a tiger showed up she saved them. Peter gave her an award of bravery for it, then Tink said goodbye.
In Fairy Haven and the Quest for the Wand (2007), he appeared when Tink wished for him to fall in love with a clam shell, she feels bad about it later. The wish is later reversed and set right.
In Fairies and the Quest for Never Land (2010), he took Gwendolyn to Never Land. He was a little mad at her because he expected her to clean, because she spent all her time in Fairy Haven. But, he soon almost forgot her and continued having adventures with the Lost Boys. Though when she said goodbye he was sad when she had lost the kiss necklace. He hops on one foot when he's trying not to be sad, like when Gwendolyn Carlisle had lost the kiss necklace.

- Peter Pan met Tinker Bell while trying to steal the tooth of a shark. He had planned to do this by rowing out on a small boat and knocking the shark out cold with his oar - but the shark was bigger than he anticipated and it bit his boat in half. Peter had not yet learned to fly, and so Tinker Bell taught him then and there to save him from the shark.
