Something strange is happening all over Never Land.All things magical are disappearing! First, Jake’s sword vanishes, followed by Izzy’s pixie dust – and even all the directions on Cubby’s map fade away! Jake and his crew soon learn that this is all happening because the Forever Tree, the source of magic on Never Land, is old and dying. As the great tree withers, the magic will continue to disappear, until Never Land itself fades away! But there is hope. Jake must go on the Forever Quest to get new pixie dust, a new map, and a new sword. All three items must be brought to the top of Mount Destiny by sundown, where they will help bring forth the new Forever Tree. The one who saves the magic of Never Land will receive some of the magic of the new tree, making them the most powerful pirate in all of Never Land! Of course, Captain Hook also wants this magic for himself – and he too takes on this great challenge. Despite the odds against Jake, our brave hero saves the magic, and brings forth the birth of a new Forever Tree! Yo ho, way to go, Jake! INCLUDES FREE EXCLUSIVE SWORD WITH GLOW-IN-THE-DARK STICKERS
