Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children stars an amazingly talented cast including Asa Butterfield, Eva Green (playing the almost Mary Poppins-esque Miss Peregrine), and Samuel L. Jackson. Although it isn’t exactly like the book, it is directed by Tim Burton (known for Beetlejuice, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Corpse Bride, etc.) and was approved of by the author, Ransom Riggs. Being a Tim Burton movie, it has elements of humor and horror mixed in. It follows the main character, Jacob, as he discovers that his grandfather’s stories about Miss Peregrine’s home in Wales and the unique children it harbors are real, and so are the “hollows”, or monsters, that threaten them. Creepy and otherwordly, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is imaginative and visually enticing (the home itself is amazing to behold). If you liked the movie, be sure to read the book (which includes eerie black and white photographs upon which most of the peculiar children are based). The library has all 3 books in the series.
