Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Ransom Riggs‘ first book.

Published 2011.

Teenage Jacob Portman is the lead character. And the book seems written for teenage boys.

I didn’t see the 2016 film, but the trailer gives you a quick look at the plot.

Click PLAY or watch it on YouTube.

Director Tim Burton changed / improved details in the book, I’d say.

Movie reviews are mixed / average. I don’t plan to see it.

This young adult book was originally intended to be a picture book featuring photographs Riggs had collected, but on the advice of an editor at Quirk Books, he used the photographs as a guide from which to put together a narrative. …

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a story about a boy who follows clues from his grandfather’s old photographs, tales, and his grandfather’s last words which lead him on an adventure that takes him to a large abandoned orphanage on Cairnholm, a fictional Welsh island.

I’ve no particular interest in reading any of the sequels.
