Ransom Riggs, the YA debut author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, recently shared the book trailer for the novel on his blog! On the publisher's blog though, they talked more about the trailer and how the author helped put it together by even "flying to Belgium to shoot in several creepy old houses" while other scenes were shot in Los Angeles. The movie rights were also recently sold to 20th Century Fox!

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the trailer because I think it has been very well done! The cover still kind of creeps me out though...

Release Date: June 7, 2011
Publisher: Quirk Books

A mysterious island.

An abandoned orphanage.

A strange collection of very curious photographs.

It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-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 the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

  5. MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN offers a unique premise in that it combines a story with vintage photographs to present a tale that is both whimsical and chilling. I loved the idea of this book. 16-year-old Jacob grows up listening to the tales of his grandfather's childhood in an orphanage filled with children with unusual powers and evil monsters lurking in the shadows.
