Review

"A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story."--John Green, New York Times best-selling author of Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns

"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

"An original work that defies categorization, this first novel should appeal to readers who like quirky fantasies. Riggs includes many vintage photographs that add a critical touch of the peculiar to his unusual tale."--Library Journal

"Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is a wonderfully original and inventive book with colorful characters, a mysterious tale woven together with threads of historical relevance, and incorporating unforgettable vintage photographs which bring the story to life."--Geeks of Doom

"Brace yourself for the last 70 pages of relentless, squirm-in-your-chair action. I loved every minute of it."--Cleveland Plain Dealer

"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

Book Description

Since its publication in June 2011, this offbeat blend of supernatural fantasy and vintage photography has dominated the YA best-seller lists-and with a Tim Burton adaptation arriving in 2016, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children shows no sign of slowing down.
