As you all know, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one of my all time favorite series. And it has been five years, FIVE YEARS, since it debuted! My goodness, I kind of feel old. So, the kind people over at Quirk Books sent me a tote bag to giveaway to my lovely readers, and fellow fans. Below is my first review of it: EDIT:
I just discovered, I never actually posted my review! How disappointing – I thought it would be fun to throw back to my initial impression, from FIVE YEARS ago. Alas. However, I highly recommend you read the series, especially before the film (directed by Tim Burton!!!!!) Releases. The writing style is unique and captivating, and incorporates vintage photographs for a haunting effect. This book is a modern day classic destined to appeal to all age groups, and book lovers.
A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of curious photographs.
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.
