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.

"Readers searching for the next Harry Potter may want to visit Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children."--CNN

"Riggs deftly moves between fantasy and reality, prose and photography to create an enchanting and at times positively terrifying story."--Associated Press

"I read all of the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children books and I loved them."--Florence of Florence + The Machine

"[A] thrilling, Tim Burton-esque tale with haunting photographs."--USA Today Pop Candy

"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

"This peculiar parable is pure perfection."--Justine magazine

"One of the coolest, creepiest YA books."--PopSugar

"It's an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters."--Publishers Weekly

"Hands down, this is one of the best books of recent years...both creepy and terrifyingly delicious."--Forces of Geek

"Though technically a children's book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is more Grimm's than Disney, and Riggs images, dropped like bread crumbs, could lead audiences of any age happily down the path of its spellbinding tale."--Florida Times-Union

"In a time when so much summer entertainment seems to be more of the same, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a pleasant surprise--a story that is fresh and new, engrosses and grips, and provides enough clues so that the ending makes sense and seems thoughtful." --PopMatters

"A twisting tale of phenomenal children, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a book that both children and adults will love."--Romper

This book was absolutely fantastic and far better than I thought it would be (and believe me I expected a lot with a title like that). The story starts with Jake Portman telling of the stories his grandfather told him... More

This book was not at all what I was expecting - but I was utterly enthralled nonetheless. It sits very firmly in science fiction, but is unlike anything else I have read before. The story had me gripped, and the... More

“Ingenious.”

Do you remember playing story games as a child, you know, the ones where you have six to ten objects in front of a group and each of you has to tell a story, but you must continue where the previous person left off?... More
