Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children PG-13
Join us for Pizza and Pages. The book and movie this month is Miss Peregrin's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs. Growing up, Jacob was captivated with his grandfather's bizarre tales and photos of levitating girls and invisible boys. Now at 16, Jacob is reeling from his grandfathers unexpected death. Then Jacob is given a mysterious letter that propels him on a journey to the remote Welsh island where his grandfather grew up. There, he finds the children from the photographs--alive and well--despite the islanders’ assertion that all were killed decades ago. As Jacob begins to unravel more about his grandfather’s childhood, he suspects he is being trailed by a monster only he can see. A haunting and out-of-the-ordinary read, author Ransom Rigg’s first-person narration is convincing and absorbing. Interspersed with photos throughout, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is an atmospheric novel with plot twists, turns, and surprises that will delight readers of any age. (Story description provided by Amazon.) Copies of the book are available to check out.
