    Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children: Hollow City

    Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children: Hollow City

    by Ransom Riggs

    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.

About This Book

This gem of lyric prose has enchanted both young and old and is now a modern classic.

Dylan Thomas, one of the greatest poets and storytellers of the twentieth century, captures a child's-eye view, and an adult's fond remembrance, of a magical time of presents, aunts and uncles, the frozen sea, and, in the best of circumstances, newly fallen snow — its wonder, silence, and snowball mischief.
