When Jacob Portman was a boy, his grandfather regaled him with stories of his fantastic life at Miss Peregrine''s home during the Second World War, even sharing photos of the remarkable children with whom he resided. As Jacob grew up, though, he decided that these photos were obvious fakes, simple forgeries designed to stir up his youthful imagination. Or were they...?

Following his grandfather''s death - a scene Jacob literally couldn''t believe with his own eyes - the sixteen-year-old boy embarks on a mission to disentangle fact from fiction in his grandfather''s tall tales. But even his grandfather''s elaborate yarns couldn''t prepare Jacob for the eccentricities he will discover at Miss Peregrine''s Home for Peculiar Children!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Choppy read Always felt I was missing something. Wish this intriguing story had been constructed in a less pecuilar manner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good stuff It's a really nice read whether or not you've read the original book. I myself did not really like the art, it felt way too sketchy and at times I dare say lazy. But getting past that, it was cool to see this cool story portrayed in a new artistic way.
