Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales.
Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. The origins of the first ymbryne. These are but a few of the truly brilliant stories in Tales of the Peculiar—known to hide information about the peculiar world—first introduced by Ransom Riggs in his Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.
Riggs now invites you to share his secrets of peculiar history, with a collection of original stories, as collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine and scholar of all things peculiar.
I sat down on the carpeted floor of Exclusive Books Greenstone (it’s like my second home now) and read through the first two stories of this unfortunately short, yet riveting and peculiar book. I was horrified by the stories, hoping for some sort of morally persuasive ending, which there was but in Brothers Grimm style. Definitely on my TBR list and a highly recommended book if you have read the Miss Peregrine Books.
I had no idea that this existed. Though I still have yet to read the other books…
You should 🙂
Thanks for letting me know about this collection. I will definitely give it a try–hopefully over the Christmas break.
