I have never read the book but had heard that it was for kids so I also hope Peter makes it into a more adult story and prequel to LOTR.
It is for kids. That's what the book is. That's what makes it charming and that's what makes it memorable. Trying to turn it into a "more adult story" may be possible I guess, but it betrays a completely tone deaf approach to the material.
I think a balanced approach to the material could work. LOTR was dark and serious but you can do more adult and still be lighthearted and even whimsical.
