I have found several volumes of revisions of or inspired by Alice in Wonderland. Now I 'm looking for the same of Peter and Wendy. I have Child Thief by Brom and really enjoyed it. Oh, and I have Captain Hook by J.V. Hart---it was okay.

Any other suggestions?

Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson have done a series, starting with Peter and the Starcatchers -- it's light and kind of fun. I read the first two, but never got around to finishing the series. Also, you might look at Peter Pan in Scarlet by Geraldine McCaughrean -- i believe it's the only sequel authorized by Barrie's estate, though I could be wrong on that. I read it shortly after it came out, and though I think I enjoyed it, it hasn't stuck in my memory.

On the other hand, I remember hating Wendy by Karen Wallace, but I'll include it here for completeness' sake.

Depending on your personal preferences and taste, you might wish to look into Alan Moore's Lost Girls. It reinterprets Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wizard of Oz in a pornographic graphic-novel medium. I thought the Peter Pan interpretation was particularly well done.

Jane Yolen has written a short-story interpretation also titled "Lost Girls" that is available in her Sister Emily's Lightship and Other Stories.

And this list might be helpful for you, too (although the titles listed above are the only ones I've myself read):
