Review
------

“I was blown away...Hollow City is fantastic.”—USAToday.com

“A worthy follow-up, and as addictive a read as the first.”—Hypable

“Hollow City mixes spooky vintage photos and action-packed storytelling to continue the story of Jacob Portman and his
fellow “peculiars” as they travel through time to war-torn London.”—Dan Kois, Slate

“A perfect blend of creepiness and thoughtfulness.”—PopMatters

“A stunning achievement… Hollow City is even richer than Riggs’s imaginative debut, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar
Children.”—Boston Globe

“What makes the series soar, however, is not the world-building, as intriguing as it is, but the heartfelt intensity of
the emotions.”—Virginian-Pilot

“Ideal for fans of Neil Gaiman and Daniel Kraus, Hollow City blends fantasy and horror into a world that will engross
readers and leave them eager for more.”—Shelf Awareness for Readers

“A tasty adventure for any reader with an appetite for the…peculiar.”—Kirkus Reviews

“New readers of the series will find this novel a treat...Fans of the first title will find this book a treasure. The
only downside: waiting for the third installment to find out what happens to Jacob and his peculiar friends.”—School
Library Journal

“Riggs has created a fresh and original world in these Peregrine novels, with likable, quirky characters and a very
readable style.”—Library Journal Xpress Review

Praise for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

“A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an
unforgettable story.”—John Green, New York Times best-selling author of Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns

“Readers searching for the next Harry Potter may want to visit Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.”—CNN

“Riggs deftly moves between fantasy and reality, prose and photography to create an enchanting and at times positively
terrifying story.”—Associated Press

“I read all of the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children books and I loved them.”—Florence of Florence + The Machine

“[A] thrilling, Tim Burton-esque tale with haunting photographs.”—USA Today Pop Candy

“With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it’s no
wonder Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+”—Entertainment
Weekly

“Peculiar’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies.”—People

“You'll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It's a mystery, and you'll race to solve it before Jacob
figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen

“This peculiar parable is pure perfection.”—Justine magazine

“One of the coolest, creepiest YA books.”—PopSugar
