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.
“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, it’s no wonder Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+”—Entertainment Weekly
“‘Peculiar’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies.”—People
“You’ll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It’s a mystery, and you’ll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen

    Ransom, you have created a real work of art, and I’m proud to be your friend. It was so fun hearing your ideas, and I loved your imagination! You’ve met every expectation! Thanks for being a friend of mine!

    By llama girl is da best
    I am 10 but love reading and this is a great example of a page turner! I read all generes but not usually fantasy but this book has a big exception! It blends fantastic fantasy characters with problems and emotions resulting in a great book! There are no parts I remember where I was trying to put down the book! The series is really great and I really recommend it to people who don’t usually read fantasy but wanna give it a try.
  • A dream

    By Moorea Seal
    This book series feels like it was plucked from my childhood dreams. Dark and beautiful and powerful. In love.
  • You Won’t Be Dissapointed

    By BennyBoo4106
    I read this for school and it was impossible to put down! The photographs not only grab your attention but clarify the complicated and quick plot, and they allow your imagery to be exactly like the author’s. Fantasy is not one of my favorite genres, but this book combines it with mystery and some horror as well to create a unique read that can draw in various crowds. I’m also not a fan of demonic or dark magic elements, but this book pleasantly surprised me by making the characters light hearted and lovable. It also sparks an anger for the opposition and makes you want to side with the wards and Jacob. In my top five reads for sure!

    If you’re a fantasy fan you’ll love this book. I enjoyed, even as a non-fantasy fan. Really well written and interesting story.
