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.

    Loved the movie but I love the novel more, did not want to put it down. Each character made you fall in love with them I wanted to be their friend and live in their world.

    This book certainly lives up to the hype! It's the perfect amount of intriguing, creepy and mysterious, and will have you hooked within the first chapter.
    The addition of vintage photographs was brilliant, and I applaud Ransom for thinking outside the box and incorporating them into the story and really pull the reader into the world of the Peculiar Children. Many of the photos were very creepy and added to the mysteriousness of the story. It was also great to see that they weren't overly used, allowing the reader to imagine the story in their own way, but still giving an idea about what is happening.
