The only reason I decided to read Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children was because of the creepy looking cover…
I really didn’t know much about the book beyond that. Turns out, Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs is a mysterious story you’ll probably want to keep reading to figure out what’s going on – especially with the strange black and white pictures scattered throughout the novel.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was an orphanage on an island that Jacob’s grandfather lived in. Grandfather shared stories about growing up in the orphanage and some stories about monsters. He shared his collection of peculiar black and white photos with Jacob. Jacob questioned if the people in the photos could even be real because they were so strange!
After something horrible happens to Grandfather, Jacob is determined to figure out a cryptic message his grandfather gave him about the island. Jacob travels with his dad to the tiny island off the coast of Wales to visit the orphanage. He discovers more than just an abandoned building! What he discovers will forever change his life!
If you like mysteries and aren’t afraid of challenging words in a story – then you should read this book!
