Summary

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children was the surprise best seller of 2011 - an unprecedented mix of YA fantasy and vintage photography that enthralled audiences and critics alike. Publishers Weekly called it "an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters."
This second novel begins in 1940, immediately after the first book ended. Having escaped Miss Peregrine's island by the skin of their teeth, Jacob and his new friends must journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. Along the way, they encounter new allies, a menagerie of peculiar animals, and other surprises.
Complete with dozens of newly discovered (and thoroughly creepy) vintage photographs, this new adventure will delight fantasy fans of all ages.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Critic reviews

"[Heyborne] moves masterfully among the large cast of characters, creating distinct British voices for each of Jacob's peculiar friends. Heyborne's sense of timing, evident pleasure in the material, and ability to thrillingly execute the book's many dramatic moments will keep listeners riveted." ( AudioFile)

Just keeps getting better

The first book was ruined by the awful attempt at accents. This one is leaps and bounds better and the story is pretty great too. I would recommend it!

Amazing

This series keeps surprising me and it is such a good read even for adults. This reader's accents are way better than in the audio book for the first one!

Different narrator

The first book had a very young sounding guy reading. This guy is a major change. It took me a while to get used to his voice but in the end it sounded right for the part.

Peculiar and Suspenseful

A very well written suspenseful adventure! I do recommend that you read Book #1 first otherwise you might be a bit lost because of all the unique references in Peculiardom.
Lost of twist and turns. Very unique and creative.
