Jacob Portman’s life changed the night his Grandfather died-little did he know his world was about to also change and not for the better. Jacob’s journey started long before he found his grandfather murdered in the field behind his house. Instead, it began the moment Grandpa Portman told Jacob all about the mysterious island, Nazi soldiers, and an orphanage that housed strange and magical children when he was a boy.
Ten years later and his grandfather’s death still fresh in his memory, Jacob and his father take a trip to a remote island off of the coast of Wales. For Jacob’s father, this trip is a chance to catch up on his passion of bird watching. For Jacob, this is the opportunity to find the answers about his Grandfather’s past and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.
MissPeregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a wondrously filled book of imagination and old photographs. Ransom Riggs perfect blend of vintage photos and an unforgettable story of originality is not only a great read for a young adult, but the perfect read for any book lover.
