A review of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

First, let me say that you will not be disappointed in Miss Peregrine’s Children, it is a rare and delightful book. I loved this book from the first page I read. There are around twenty photographs in this book, and they really help you understand the plot and characters. I was captivated and interested in this novel, and the photos were stunning, I couldn’t believe that Ransom Riggs found them, they are true gems.

The story is about Jacob, a sixteen year old boy who finds his life miserable. He has a job that he really hates (he works at Smart Aid), his parents don’t understand him, and his one and only friend can barely tolerate him. His only real source of happiness is his Grandpa, who tells him wild and unimaginable stories. When a horrific family tragedy happens, Jacob is left with many questions and clues, which led him to an abandoned orphanage on a Welsh island. Jacob discovers the unthinkable, and that his Grandpa’s stories might not have been just fairy tales.

The characters are all amazing, and they have different qualities that make them unforgettable. They all serve a great purpose, and it is fun to learn about them. I really enjoyed how they are so different.

If you like fiction, or mysterious and spooky books, then I guarantee that this series won’t disappoint you. Even thought these books would be considered YA books, everyone will find the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series a fantastic and exciting read. It is fast paced and there’s never a dull moment.
