Just in time for the film release, the fantastic and peculiar book of tales featured in the #1 international bestselling Miss Peregrine series is brought to life in this beautifully illustrated new book.

Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. The origins of the first ymbryne. These stories and more are featured in Tales of the Peculiar, the collection of peculiar fairy tales (first introduced in Hollow City) that was revealed to hide unexpected information about the peculiar world, including clues to the locations of time loops. A perfect gift for the series’ myriad fans that’s also a compelling, rich, and truly peculiar story collection for everyone.

Ransom Riggs is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children novels. Prior to writing his first novel, Riggs published a tongue-in-cheek guide to life as a professional detective (The Sherlock Holmes Handbook) and a coffee-table collection of found snapshots with surprising messages written on them (Talking Pictures). Before that he worked as a writer for Mental Floss’s magazine and blog, which explains his love of obscure trivia. Riggs was born on a farm in Maryland and grew up in southern Florida. He studied literature at Kenyon College and film at the University of Southern California. His hobbies include urban exploration, wreck diving, collecting vintage found photography, and making short films. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, bestselling author Tahereh Mafi.
