Summary
The Second Novel of Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children

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.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Hard on the heels of Riggs' first hugely successful effort, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (2011), comes this equally creepy sequel, which picks up where the first book left off. Jacob and the 10 peculiar children are now headed to war-torn London (the year is 1940), desperate to find a way to release Miss Peregrine from the spell that has trapped her in the body of a bird. But the doughty band is headed into terrible danger, for the metropolis is overrun by evil wights and their minions, the fiendish hollowgasts. Together, the villains have imprisoned all but two of the surviving ymbrines: the missing Miss Wren and the transformed Miss Peregrine. Can Jacob and friends find the former, and can she then help them? Ah, therein lies the tale. Like the first volume, this one is generously illustrated with peculiar period photographs that capture and enhance the eerie mood and mode. Fans will be pleased with this second volume and downright delighted to know that a third in the series is in the offing.--Cart, Michael Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this sequel to the bestselling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, young Jacob Portman, having discovered his ability to sense the monstrous wights and hollowgasts that are attempting to capture or kill Peculiars, has narrowly escaped with them and their injured leader, the birdlike "ymbryne," Miss Peregrine. The children must travel cross-country and through time loops, dodging monsters all the way, to Blitz-era London where, rumor has it that the last free ymbryne, Miss Wren, is hiding. En route, they meet talking animals, helpful Romany, and other Peculiars with odd talents: "The suitcase jiggled.... Its latches popped, and very slowly, the case began to open. A pair of white eyes peeped out at the crowd, and then the case opened a little more to reveal a face-that of an adult man... who had somehow folded himself into a suitcase no larger than my torso." Riggs's use of grotesque, unsettling, and sometimes lightly retouched photographs is just as successful in this outing, and while the plot occasionally feels forced to fit the photographs, it will easily please the previous book's numerous fans. Ages 14-up. (Jan.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
