9780316245289: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: The Graphic Novel (Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children: The Graphic Novel)

When Jacob Portman was a boy, his grandfather regaled him with stories of his fantastic life at Miss Peregrine's home during the Second World War, even sharing photos of the remarkable children with whom he resided. As Jacob grew up, though, he decided that these photos were obvious fakes, simple forgeries designed to stir up his youthful imagination. Or were they...?

Following his grandfather's death - a scene Jacob literally couldn't believe with his own eyes - the sixteen-year-old boy embarks on a mission to disentangle fact from fiction in his grandfather's tall tales. But even his grandfather's elaborate yarns couldn't prepare Jacob for the eccentricities he will discover at Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children!

About the Author:

Ransom Riggs grew up in Florida, where he spent his formative years making silly movies with his friends in their various backyards, snorkeling, and complaining about the heat. He studied English at Kenyon College and film at the University of Southern California. He lives in Los Angeles. He makes films you can watch on his YouTube page: www.youtube.com/ransriggs. He enjoys traveling to exotic lands and complaining about the heat. He would like to thank you for reading this short biography.

From Booklist:

A graphic adaptation of Riggs’s popular crossover novel might seem like a strange prospect since the original is already illustrated with the odd, antique photos that inspired Riggs’ unusual tale. But Jean (Beautiful Creatures, 2013) doesn’t try to overshadow the pictures with her artwork, instead seamlessly blending them in. At first readers will find those photos as fake as 16-year-old Jacob does, believing them to be nothing more than false memories that helped his grandfather survive WWII. But when monsters prove to be real and kill Jacob’s grandfather, the boy must flee to an island off the coast of Wales to find the “peculiar” children who sheltered his grandfather, who will help Jacob learn who he is, and who he will, in the end, have to save from the monsters. Jean’s scratchy black-and-white line drawings perfectly detail Jacob’s mundane life until he discovers the island’s secrets and color comes winging in. The luminous art brings the heart of Riggs’ story to life—albeit at the expense of some character development—and should leave readers eager for the next installment. Grades 8-11. --Snow Wildsmith
