    Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children
    By Ransom Riggs


    "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" by Ransom Riggs

    A New York Times #1 best seller

    On the New York Times Best Seller List for more than 52 consecutive weeks

    Includes an excerpt from the much-anticipated sequel and an interview with author Ransom Riggs

    A mysterious island.


    An abandoned orphanage.

    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 were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehowundefinedimpossible though it seemsundefinedthey 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.
    All are welcome! Any questions, please contact Gail Haller, cell: 773-510-7191.
