Praise
"Riggs's use of grotesque, unsettling, and sometimes lightly retouched photographs...will easily please the previous book's numerous fans."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Miss Peregrine?s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011?an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled readers and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it ?an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters.?This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine?s island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other unexpected surprises.Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly mesmerizing) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight readers of all ages.
Annotation Having escaped a Welsh island in MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, sixteen-year-old Jacob and his nine "peculiar" friends, each of whom has a supernatural ability, must get Miss Peregrine to London where a shapeshifter can change her back from her birdlike form. They travel in and out of time, outwit monsters, befriend talking animals and land at last in war-torn London, circa 1940 where their heroic quest raises big moral questions about the value of human life. Rigg's otherworldy, vintage photographs again provide the creepy backdrop to this journey."
