Description

“‘Peculiar’ doesn’t begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed for the movies.” People on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award
A New York Times bestseller
A USA Today bestseller
A Publishers Weekly bestseller
An Amazon Best Book of the Month for January 2014

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise bestseller 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 surprises.

Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly creepy) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight fantasy listeners of all ages.

Praise

“‘Peculiar’ doesn’t begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed for the movies.” People on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

“With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it’s no wonder Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox.” Entertainment Weekly on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

“Readers searching for the next Harry Potter may want to visit Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.” CNN on Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

“The sequel to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is as hauntingly sinister as the first and is unequivocally worth the wait…A must-read!” RT Book Reviews (4½ stars)

“Fans of the surprise hit Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will welcome Kirby Heyborne’s engaging narration of Riggs’ second book…Heyborne deftly guides listeners through the complex story. Never hurrying the pace, he allows listeners to absorb Riggs’ image-rich, densely plotted prose. Heyborne also moves masterfully among the large cast of characters, creating distinct British voices for each of Jacob’s peculiar friends. Heyborne’s sense of timing, evident pleasure in the material, and ability to thrillingly execute the book’s many dramatic moments will keep listeners riveted.” AudioFile
