Summary

The fantastic and peculiar book of tales featured in the #1 international bestselling Miss Peregrine series is brought to life in this beautifully illustrated volume—now in a luxe paperback edition with an all-new tale added!

A companion to the New York Times bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, which was also developed as a major motion picture directed by Tim Burton.

Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales.

Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. These are but a few of the truly brilliant stories in Tales of the Peculiar—the collection of fairy tales known to hide information about the peculiar world, including clues to the locations of time loops—first introduced by Ransom Riggs in his #1 bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.

Riggs now invites you to share his secrets of peculiar history with a selection of stories, as collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine and scholar of all things peculiar. Featuring stunning illustrations from world-renowned woodcut artist Andrew Davidson this is a compelling and truly peculiar anthology.

A perfect gift, this beautifully packaged paperback edition features french flaps, gold patterned endpapers, and a two-color interior with richly detailed woodcuts throughout.

About the Author

Ransom Riggs is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children novels. Prior to writing his first novel, Riggs published a tongue-in-cheek guide to life as a professional detective (The Sherlock Holmes Handbook, Quirk Books) and a coffee-table collection of found snapshots with surprising messages written on them (Talking Pictures, Harper Collins). Before that he worked as a writer for Mental Floss’s magazine and blog, which explains his love of obscure trivia. Riggs was born on a farm in Maryland and grew up in southern Florida. He studied literature at Kenyon College and film at the University of Southern California. His hobbies include urban exploration, wreck diving, collecting vintage found photography, and making short films. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, bestselling author Tahereh Mafi, and their family.

Andrew Davidson graduated from the Royal College of Art with a Masters in Graphic Design. Davidson has worked as an illustrator in a number of different disciplines, but craft and design have always been the cornerstones of his work. His varied career has included wood engravings for The Iron Man by Ted Hughes, more than twelve sets of stamps for the Royal Mail, and the glass etched doors for the Center Court at Wimbledon. He is married ot his wife, Julia, and has two sons, Lewis and Hugh.
