Halloween is fast approaching, and I’ve been recommending books to help get us in the Halloween spirt. I’ve recommended a ghost story, and a murder mystery. Today I’m recommending something completely different; something that I don’t know how to categorize.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. Fiction is based on real black and white photographs. The death of grandfather Abe sends 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, and explores abandoned bedrooms and hallways. The children may still live.
I’ve never seen a book like this before, and the photos are really creepy. So is the book trailer.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is incredibly popular. Your best bet is to place a hold.
