"Boy, can Ransom Riggs tell a story. If he'd been stuck in rainy 1818 Switzerland with Lord Byron, and Mary and Percy Shelley and taken up Byron's challenge to write a ghost story, Miss Peregrine would have given Frankenstein a run for its money." --NPR.org

"A visually rich literary experience." -- New York Times Book Review

"[A] chilling, wondrous novel." -- People

"[A] thrilling, Tim Burton-esque tale with haunting photographs." -- USA Today

"Readers searching for the next Harry Potter may want to visit Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children." --CNN

"X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich eerie detail." -- Entertainment Weekly

"A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story." --John Green, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Turtles All the Way Down and The Fault in Our Stars
