Miss Peregrin’s Home for Peculiar Children

Ransom Riggs

I’ve been dying to read this one for ages.  I mean, look at it–what a cover!  The inside looks just as impressive.  The story is littered with real pictures and it gets even better!  A co-worker pointed out to me that the photos are real!  They’re all from collections that are thanked at the end of the book.  How cool is that?

Unfortunately, the beginning of the book is as painful to get through as a root canal without Novocaine.  Once the reader meets the kids, everything gets much better.  Another unfortunate piece of news is that the ending makes it seem like another book is on it’s way, though I haven’t heard any definite news about a sequel yet.  Just rumors (which I hope are all true).

I’d be so disappointed if this was all we got.  However, if there IS another, I’m very curious to see what pictures he’ll use.  I’m hesitant to recommend this book to other people because of the slow start, but if you’re willing to get passed that, I think this will entertain many of you.
