Description

Amazon Best Books of the Month, June 2011: As a kid, Jacob formed a special bond with his grandfather over his bizarre
tales and photos of levitating girls and invisible boys. Now at 16, he is reeling from the old man's unexpected death.
Then Jacob is given a mysterious letter that propels him on a journey to the remote Welsh island where his grandfather
grew up. There, he finds the children from the photographs--alive and well--despite the islanders’ assertion that all
were killed decades ago. As Jacob begins to unravel more about his grandfather’s childhood, he suspects he is being
trailed by a monster only he can see. A haunting and out-of-the-ordinary read, debut author Ransom Rigg’s first-person
narration is convincing and absorbing, and every detail he draws our eye to is deftly woven into an unforgettable whole.
Interspersed with photos throughout,* * Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a truly atmospheric novel with
plot twists, turns, and surprises that will delight readers of any age.
