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 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.
