'A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together- brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.'- John Green, author of The Fault In Our Stars

A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of peculiar 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 decaying bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that Miss Peregrine's 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.

Ransom Riggs is the author of The Sherlock Holmes Handbook and Talking Pictures, a collection of found photographs. He lives in Los Angeles. This is his first novel.
