September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird. The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom. Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with vintage photography to create a one-of-a-kind reading experience.

Better than the first.
I remember reading Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children three years ago, in fourth grade. It was eerie. It was creepy. It was dark. It was one of those books where it took a while to feel normal after reading it. I didn't think it was possible to match the speed of that book, but Riggs proved me wrong. The pictures in this book add a whole new dynamic, which just adds to the creepiness. Not that the pictures in the other book weren't good, it just felt like the pictures in this one fit in better. It makes you feel more immersed and involved with the book. Everything that was great in the first book is even better in this one. I will say, it can get a little bit gritty at times, but you have to keep pushing through. Riggs takes you on an adventure that no other book can offer (aside from Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children). If you haven't read the first book, I highly recommend you read that before you read this, as it it provides very important background information. If you have already read the first book, don't wait another minute. Just read this book. It will be well worth your time and money. Oh, and if you think you will have a hard time remembering where you left off, don't worry. Ransom does a great job of subtly reminding you what had happened previously.
Oh my goodness
Oh my, I loved it! It was fascinating. Once again I can't wait for the third book!!!!!!! Write it fast Ransom!!!!
I read the first book a few years ago, and it was such a lovely book. Can’t wait to read the second one - so happy and excited!
