A new set of stories from the world of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. Now in paperback with a brand-new story: The Man who Bottled the Sun.

In this collection of fairy tales, Ransom Riggs invites you to uncover hidden legends of the peculiar world. A fork-tongued princess, a girl who talks to ghosts, and wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars are just a few of the characters whose stories will have you hooked.

Featuring stunning illustrations from world-renowned artist Andrew Davidson, this compelling, rich and truly peculiar anthology is the perfect gift for fans - and for all lovers of great storytelling.

Watch the movie, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, directed by the visionary Tim Burton and starring Judi Dench, Eva Green and Samuel L Jackson.

Praise for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children:
'A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.' John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars
