About this deal

Gloriously rich and utterly delightful, Miss Peregrine's Museum of Wonders is an indispensable guide to the peculiar world, perfect for longtime fans and new readers alike. However, the add-on books (peculiar Tales and this book) that have come out in recent years have been pretty fun. There is a lot of lore found such as the type of peculiars we’ve seen in the series, how they lived and there are even some personal stories and interesting facts. I always love when a series releases a sort of guide to the world and some parts of it, so this was perfect for me.

As such it does not read linearly but rather as a series of articles covering a wide range of topics. The story was depressing yet captivating and I would’ve loved it if there was a full novel dedicated to Gloria’s romance. This is a book that really needs to be read in tandem with the 6 books since many references (especially to certain people) do not really achieve their true impact otherwise.It somewhat feels like this book was written as a way for Ransom Riggs to have people see more of his antique photographs that he’s collected, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing since I know a lot of people fell in love with the Miss Peregrine’s series because of the antique photos. I had a hard time reading about it before but, now that I have finished this book, I seem to fully understand its make-believe science.

Just be careful looking at anything involving Jacob and his grandfather ahead of reading all the books bc you might read a spoiler. Brought me back into the wonderful and inspiring world of the peculiar through the intellectual and witty writtings of Mrs.

The addition of Miss Peregrine’s comments and notes to Jacob made it tie in with the series in a fun way, so I’m glad I read it immediately after finishing the series. That being said, there is no real story here it is just more lore and peculiar world building so if you have not already read the Miss Peregrine’s series do NOT start here because there will be spoilers for the larger series, and you won’t have a connection to the characters and so the fun footnotes from Miss Peregrine will lose much of their charm.

This is a spinoff from the Miss Peregrine series purporting to be a guide to Peculiardom written by Miss Peregrine herself. This volume is the ideal primer for anyone curious about the world of Miss Peregrine: an overview of its strange history, curious practices, fascinating places, the most famous (and infamous) members of its peculiar families, and much more. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.Some of my other favorite parts (though they were brief) were the pages mentioning famous peculiars that include some famous people from the real world, as well as the section that describes why photographs are so important to peculiars.

Gloriously rich and utterly delightful, Miss Peregrine’s Museum of Wonders is an indispensable guide to the peculiar world, perfect for longtime fans and new readers alike. Probably only of interest to fans of the series, it's an entertaining look at the world created by Riggs. With this book, the guidebook provides information to peculiars who’ve just discovered that they are a part of the peculiar world.Covering history, practices, memorable characters and much more, this immersive companion to Ransom Riggs' bestselling Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series is an absolute must-have for passionate fans. The peculiar world is so vast and complex that I could easily imagine Ransom Riggs writing peculiar short story collections in the future that revolve around characters like Gloria. Covering everything from how to blend in with suspicious normals to the most popular time loops to visit as a temporal tourist, this essential compilation is ideal for anyone curious about the world of Miss Peregrine: its strange history, curious practices, fascinating places, most famous (and infamous) names, and much more. I grew up on a farm on the Eastern shore of Maryland and also in a little house by the beach in Englewood, Florida where I got very tan and swam every day until I became half fish.
