Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children | by Ransom Riggs

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
(Quirk Books, 2011, 352 pages)

I thought this was a great book. The story starts out a little slowly, but once it picks up, it doesn’t stop. It is mostly fantasy, which I don’t typically prefer (sorry, Harry Potter), but I enjoyed this book.   The text is accompanied by dozens of interesting black and white photos, which are a little hard to see with a Nook Simple Touch, so I recommend this one in print! In the Acknowledgements section it is revealed that these are authentic vintage photos that have been collected over the years by various people from flea markets, antique malls, and yard sales. The story ends in such a way that could lead to a sequel… I think this would make an interesting film adaptation, Mr. Scorsese.
