Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Front Cover

I feel hopelessly behind the times, having just picked up my copy of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. What a wonderfully strange book! I realize that it's been around for awhile, and I'm sorry that I missed out on the treat for so long. Bravo! for author Ransom Riggs! I'm halfway through the story and can't wait to finish.

So, if you've not read the book, I highly recommend that you get a copy, then settle down for a great read. Ransom Riggs is a very talented writer and has created a haunting page-turner. His marvelous use of peculiar old photographs to support the story is inspired. Though I'm a voracious reader, rarely does the subject matter invade my dreams. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has managed to.

I understand that a film based on the book is in the works. Hope Hollywood stays true to the story and loses none of its mysterious, touching or magical qualities.

Happy Hauntings,
