Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

by

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And 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 who once lived here - one of whom was his own grandfather - were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate 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.

  • Unusual book Jun 22, 2016
    by Elizabeth c

    This was a book used by my book club and while it wasn't the usual genre I read, I did enjoy it and it made for a good discussion

  • Quirky, fun, and for adults as well as kids Nov 30, 2013
    by Nancy L

    A fun fantasy with some interesting history, mystery, and quirky characters.

  • Never Never Land meets the Holocaust Mar 22, 2012
    by Mary P

    An interesting sort of Alternate Reality view of human resilience, suffering, and prejudice vis a vis the Holocaust, accentuated with photos of "different" survivors.

  • Great book! Dec 22, 2011
    by Maxine A

    This book started a little slow for me, but once you kept reading, you just couldn't put it down. If this book doesn't become a movie, I'll be surprised.

  • Bad-Bad-Bad Oct 26, 2011
    by charles m

    Don't be fooled by the captivating title. The author has taken a potentially spooky subject and written yet another time travel joke book. My advice-If you want deformed super-heroes rent the Incredibles, if you want time travel watch Bill and Ted. (either one ) if you want a nap-read this book.
