Miss Peregrine Book Trailer: Director's Cut!

Ransom Riggs

I've been thinking about and working on various aspects of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children for so long that it feels like the book came out a long time ago -- but it was only yesterday that it officially hit shelves! It's been a long, peculiar trip. To celebrate, I'm releasing this longer, more peculiar version of the book trailer. If you're so inclined, you can read sample chapters and find out how to order the book here (though it should be in bookstores now, too). Also, yesterday the book got a really nice review from the Associated Press. They write:

"It's delightfully reminiscent of my favorite childhood books, ones in which the protagonist discovers a hidden passageway into a strange world where everyone has been expecting her. Riggs deftly moves between fantasy and reality, prose and photography, to create an enchanting and at times positively terrifying story. And while it has a young adult feel to it, "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" will assuredly please readers of all ages, particularly those who enjoy a healthy dose of gothic in their fiction."
