Riggs, Ransom. MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN. Quirk Books, 2011. An unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and very strange vintage photographs in a thrilling reading experience. A horrific family tragedy sets 16-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that Miss Peregrine's children were more than just peculiar. And somehow --- impossible through it seems --- they may still be alive. A first printing of Ransom Riggs' first novel. The first printing binding was not very durable on the spine ends and rubbed easily, so binding was changed on subsequent printings; first printings from this small publisher are hard to find. A New York Times Best Seller for seven weeks and already in a third printing; the author is working on a sequel. SIGNED & DATED JUNE 19, 2011 BY RANSOM RIGGS ON THE TITLE PAGE. $325.00. Young Adult Fiction.
