[A] thrilling, Tim Burton-esque tale with haunting photographs. USA Today Pop Candy

With itsX-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it s no wonderMiss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Childrenhas been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+ Entertainment Weekly
Peculiar doesn t even begin to cover it. Riggs chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies. People

Hands down, this is one of the best books of recent years...both creepy and terrifyingly delicious. Forces of Geek

In a time when so much summer entertainment seems to be more of the same, Miss Peregrine s Home for Peculiar Childrenis a pleasant surprise a story that is fresh and new, engrosses and grips, and provides enough clues so that the ending makes sense and seems thoughtful. PopMatters

From the Inside Flap

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. The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. 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. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom. Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.

"A stunning achievement . . Hollow City is even richer than Riggs's imaginative debut, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children"-Boston Globe

Bonus features:
