Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs deserves all the raves and recognition afforded the Harry Potter and Hunger Games book series. The premise is so clever in both its simplicity and originality that it defies easy categorization. With all its supernatural elements like monsters and a type of time travel, what’s remarkable is that Riggs keeps his narrative perfectly plausible and grounded through his protagonist Jacob and all the amazing titular peculiar children. Using vintage photographs around which he weaves his story, Riggs achieves something wonderfully unique and perfectly charming. It’s a world I loved getting lost in, and I can’t wait for the next book.
