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 makes for a thrilling listening 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, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

    This book sucks you right in during the first chapter and each chapter after keeps you wanting more. It is such an interesting written book, from a very talented author. When you get to the end you wanting more and waiting for the sequel seems like it is forever away. The Narration brought this book life and did an excellent job. the book is a must read and is so different it was a nice change to what I am use to reading/listening too. I recommended giving it a try even if you don\'t read fantasy, because it was written so well that I cna\'t help but think that no matter what type of books you read you will appreciate this book for the talent it was written with. Happy Reading/Listening everyone!

    Such an interesting and captivating fantasy book that reminds me of nothing else I have ever read! It grabs you right from the start, along with a little magic and unbelievable characters keeps you there. The ending was the only part I did not like as it should have kept going, I did not want it to end and can only hope a sequel is being written.
