Oh, my birds, I love this book! I'm obsessed with Ransom Riggs' wildly creative world packed with heroic, heartwarming characters, supper baddies, and incredible settings like Devil's Acre and the Library of Souls. --Annalyse, Justine Magazine Fans of the trilogy's first two books will enjoy Library of Souls for its unique world, fast action, satisfying answers and a thorough tying up of loose ends. --Free Lance-Star Library of Souls will not disappoint. --Forces of Geek I was blown away by the way the haunting photographs were woven so seamlessly into the incredible plot. And Library of Souls has simply the most perfect ending. --Nikki, Justine Magazine The challenge Riggs faces in Library of Souls is to match the remarkably high standard set by the first two books in the series, either the mind-bending bafflements of the first book or the edge-of-your-seat action of the second. Riggs succeeds, delivering a thrilling conclusion to Jacob's trilogy. --Paste magazine Fans will easily lose themselves in this most peculiar tale of all. --Booklist Thrilling and satisfying. --School Library Journal Enthralling. --Children's Bookwatch I enjoyed reading this book so much, the cliched, 'I couldn't put it down, ' doesn't suffice. --Geeks of Doom Readers are sure to leap right in after the cliffhanger ending of Hollow City, and they won't be disappointed. --RT Book Review, 4 1/2 out of 5 stars Non-stop wonder. --Geeks of Doom 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, New York Times best-selling author of Looking for Alaska and Paper Towns Readers searching for the next Harry Potter may want to visit Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. --CNN Riggs deftly moves between fantasy and reality, prose and photography to create an enchanting and at times positively terrifying story. --Associated Press I read all of the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children books and I loved them. --Florence of Florence + The Machine [A] thrilling, Tim Burton-esque tale with haunting photographs. --USA Today Pop Candy With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it's no wonder Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+ --Entertainment Weekly Peculiar' doesn't even begin to cover it. Riggs' chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies. --People You'll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It's a mystery, and you'll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself. --Seventeen This peculiar parable is pure perfection. --Justine magazine One of the coolest, creepiest YA books. --PopSugar It's an enjoyable, eccentric read, distinguished by well-developed characters, a believable Welsh setting, and some very creepy monsters. --Publishers Weekly An original work that defies categorization, this first novel should appeal to readers who like quirky fantasies. Riggs includes many vintage photographs that add a critical touch of the peculiar to his unusual tale. --Library Journal Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children is a wonderfully original and inventive book with colorful characters, a mysterious tale woven together with threads of historical relevance, and incorporating unforgettable vintage photographs which bring the story to life. --Geeks of Doom Brace yourself for the last 70 pages of relentless, squirm-in-your-chair action. I loved every minute of it. --Cleveland Plain Dealer Hands down, this is one of the best books of recent years...both creepy and terrifyingly delicious. --Forces of Geek Though technically a children's book, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is more Grimm's than Disney, and Riggs images, dropped like bread crumbs, could lead audiences of any age happily down the path of its spellbinding tale. --Florida Times-Union In a time when so much summer entertainment seems to be more of the same, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a pleasant surprise--a story that is fresh and new, engrosses and grips, and provides enough clues so that the ending makes sense and seems thoughtful. --PopMatters A twisting tale of phenomenal children, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a book that both children and adults will love. --Romper Praise for Hollow City I was blown away...Hollow City is fantastic. --USAToday.com A worthy follow-up, and as addictive a read as the first. --Hypable Hollow City mixes spooky vintage photos and action-packed storytelling to continue the story of Jacob Portman and his fellow peculiars as they travel through time to war-torn London. --Dan Kois, Slate A perfect blend of creepiness and thoughtfulness. --PopMatters A stunning achievement... Hollow City is even richer than Riggs's imaginative debut, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. --Boston Globe What makes the series soar, however, is not the world-building, as intriguing as it is, but the heartfelt intensity of the emotions. --Virginian-Pilot Ideal for fans of Neil Gaiman and Daniel Kraus, Hollow City blends fantasy and horror into a world that will engross readers and leave them eager for more. --Shelf Awareness for Readers A tasty adventure for any reader with an appetite for the...peculiar. --Kirkus Reviews New readers of the series will find this novel a treat...Fans of the first title will find this book a treasure.
