About this item

A mysterious island.
An abandoned orphanage.
A strange collection of very curious photographs.
It all waits to be discovered in "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow--impossible though it seems--they may still be alive.
A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

I found this book three days ago in my local Wal-Mart. What caught my eye first was the pictures on the covor..( I thought a few were pretty odd) but they did infact grab my attention. I read the inside of the covor and decided I would give it a try. Im so glad I did! As the story progresses you find yourself falling into it and almost becoming Jacob (the main character). You can almost visualize his experiance. Also, you become so fond of the "Perculiar Children". Feeling almost as if these exceptional beings are becoming your friends. I read and read and read and couldnt keep from wondering what the next page held. I hated to see the book end but maybe there could be a sequel in the making?! For Ransom Riggs first book I greatly applaud him! Any one who is condsidering reading this, I say put your best foot forward and enjoy!

This book was AMAZING. I found myself reading for hours at a time and didn't want to put the book down. If you're interested in the Harry Potter series or the twilight series then you'll be able to appreciate the unusual in this book. Also, those who love anything about time travel or being stuck in time this is the book for you. The best part is you actually get to see the people the book describes like literally its combined with over 20 pictures for the reader to enjoy for endless hours.

I was really drawn in by how the author connected 'delusions' to 'real life'. And for the most part, it was a fantastic read. However, the last few chapters did get VERY weird. I mean, the whole book was kinda so, but it got REALLY out there. And it also seemed rather rushed in the end.

I ordered this book because of the cover and title. The photographs are amazing and tell an intriguing story. However the story is definately Young Adult literature. It is for teens. I enjoyed reading it though, it should be marveled just for its artistic qualities alone!
