Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children is a recently released young adult book by first time author Ransom Riggs. The story of teenage Jacob and his grandfather’s mysterious stories and death is combined with odd, old photographs which appear throughout the book. Miss Peregrine’s is delightfully creepy, like listening to ghost stories by campfire. My heart would race, and then I would turn the page to find a photograph with just the right amount of scary in it. Riggs has gathered up old time-y photos from various collectors and crafts a riveting adventure around his finds featuring a unique cast of characters.  Adults and teens will enjoy reading this strange collaboration of photos and text, and can look forward to both a film version as well as a sequel, due to be released in Spring 2013.
