Book Review: Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children - by Ransom Riggs
"Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children" has the kind of cover that has you picking up the book hoping for a creepy horror story that will keep you up at night. They’re right when they say not to judge a book by it’s cover, because I began the book expecting (hoping) to be spooked. How wrong I was. Reading the summaries, and even beginning the book, it is implied that these creepy children in the pictures (We’re talking spooky looking girls, creepy twins, a kid with a mouth on the back of his head!) are something to be feared. They’re supposed to be evil! That’s why the pictures are so scary! I felt like the entire buzz around the book depicts the kids to be these evil things that our sweet, naïve Jacob should run away from.
