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.

Ransom Riggs is an author living in Los Angeles.

Please tell me there's another book. You just left it hanging there like juicy red apple and then snatched it away.

OMG! I just finished the first three chapters, and I am SSOOOO angry that our bookstore closed! Now I'm going to have to order the book, and wait for it to come in...In the meantime, I am hoping my library fine is small and I can pay it tomorrow, and the library has the book! I really hope if it ends on a "to be continued" note, that I see part two soon!! Great start!! :0)

is this book good, is it at all scary i am in 7th grade and i want to know more about it can someone gve me a quick summary please thank you!

its not that at all scary unless u dont like the pictures but it becomes a really good read

This book is spectacular. I just finished it yesterday. Does anybody know if there is a sequel to it???

this book was amazing i was so upset when it ended!! when will they come out with another one or will they?? I am so obsessed with this book!! great job!!! :)

this book is amazing. I got it for christmas. I read the description and couldn't wait to start reading it. i finished it in 3 days. I'd recommend it to anyone. The pictures make the story. i couldn't put it down.

I just finished reading the book in less than a day and loved it!!!!!!!!! I was wondering if there will be a book 2 and if yes when will it come out?

Is anyone else missing pages 257-288? I was so into this book until I got to page 256 and the next page said 289. No gaps in the binding, no damage to the book at all, just missing pages. I wanted to finish it sooo bad, but I couldn't!

Hey Amanda! In the event you see this, please email me! eric@quirkbooks.com
