Soon after his grandfather’s death Jacob learns that the fairytales he was told as a boy are more than just fairy tales. In fact, they might be real, children who can fly, invisible boys, a bird who watches over them. But Jacob couldn’t possibly be one these peculiar children himself, could he?
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is not the story I first thought it would be. I originally thought it would be about a home where peculiar children learn to master their strange talents. However, it’s more the story of a boy who learns of the existence of a home for strange children and his life becoming irrevocably changed and entangled with theirs.
The story itself is quite unique and interesting. The characters are well developed and likeable. At times the pace could have been a little faster.
I’m excited to see the movie version, although I have a feeling it might be significantly different.
My Rating: 3/5
