Jacob is a special kind of boy. After witnessing the tragic death of his grandfather, it’s up to Jacob to sort out the truth between his childhood stories and what he really saw. 

He journeys to Wales with his father in tow. A culture shock upon another culture shock happens as he stumbles upon a world that never should have existed. 

A tale a wonder and magic through the use of words and pictures. This debut for Riggs is absolutely stunning and definitely one of the top five best books that I read last year. There isn’t much to say about this book except that everyone should read it! The use of photos within the book helps enhance the story in a way I’ve never experience before. It’s because of the use of creepy – yet still true images that help aid this remarkable and adventurous story. 

A true tale of wonder in Wales. It’s a fantastically coming of age story about Jacob and Miss Peregrine’s home for peculiar children.
