About this item

A New York Times #1 best seller

On the New York Times Best Seller List for more than 52 consecutive weeks

Includes an excerpt from the much-anticipated sequel and an interview with author Ransom Riggs

A mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrines 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 Peregrines 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 somehowimpossible though it seemsthey may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story. John Green, New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars

With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, its no wonder Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+ Entertainment Weekly

Peculiar doesnt even begin to cover it. Riggs chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies. People

Youll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. Its a mystery, and youll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself. Seventeen

I haven't read this one yet, got the second one first and loved it so had to read the first one to see what happened before! Love the way they take the pix and write the story around them, great idea. Odd but great reading. All ages.
