Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
My middle school-aged daughter has been reading the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series and LOVES IT.
The books have 4.5 stars out of 5 from almost 800 reviews, so she’s not alone in her love for this series.
The third book in the series was at the top of her wishlist for Christmas.
If you’ve read the books or seen the movie, then you’ll know the story is fascinating and magical, but a little dark and tense at times. This is definitely NOT a story for younger kids, but is something that older kids and teens may enjoy depending on their reading tastes.
Includes 3 paperback novels by Ransom Riggs and a collectible postcard. The #1 New York Times Best Seller is now a major motion picture from visionary director Tim Burton, starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield, Ella Purnell, Samuel L. Jackson, and Judi Dench.
MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN: A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in this groundbreaking novel, which mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling new kind of reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob Portman journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
HOLLOW CITY: September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird.

There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner.
LIBRARY OF SOULS: A boy, a girl, and a talking dog. They’re all that stands between the sinister wights and the future of peculiar children everywhere.
