Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children [Graphic Novel Version]

Riggs, Ransom. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Yen Press, 2013.

Jacob travels with his family to a remote island where he explores an abandoned house that was once Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.  Soon, though, he discovers that the house might not be haunted after all; perhaps the children are still alive.

This graphic interpretation of the original book includes the photographs from the novel and is engaging and entertaining.  I can see this book being very popular among my patrons, whose two favorite types of books are graphic novels and paranormal stories.

Recommended for: teens, tweens
Red Flags: none
Overall Rating: 5/5 stars
