A worldwide phenomenon, the Miss Peregrine series was born out of creator Ransom Rigg’s love of vintage photographs and inexplicable stories. Told in a combination of words and strange and sinister images, open the door to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children - an orphanage, a home for the bizarre and a quarantine for the potentially dangerous - and discover a story beyond your imagining.
There is a world that exists beyond the one we know, a world that flickers into view in old, discarded photographs. Photographs of inhuman strangeness, photographs of the long-dead. Or so you might think. Sixteen-year old Jacob’s life has already been mired in tragedy when he follows the trail of breadcrumbs that lead from this treasure-trove of lost secrets to an island shrouded in mystery where something waits, waits for him, waits to be set free.
Do you dare to follow Jacob as he uncovers the truth behind the strange inhabitants he meets there, from a beautiful, pyrotechnic girl to a frightened invisible boy and Miss Peregrine herself – enigmatic, brilliant and with extraordinary powers of her own, powers over time itself?
Something waits for you in the dark, something that moves with the shadows and calls to you when the light fails. Look carefully and then look again. You are never alone.
Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him, and doing their best to blend in.
But carefree days of beach visits and ‘normalling’ lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery-a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob's grandfather, Abe. Clues to Abe's double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge, secrets long hidden in plain sight. And Jacob begins to learn about the dangerous legacy he has inherited-truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine's time loop.
Now, the stakes are higher than ever as Jacob and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom. This is a world that none of them understand, a world with few ymbrynes and even fewer rules.
