About the Book



Originally published in hardcover in 2016 by Syndrigast Publications/Dutton Books.



Book Synopsis



A companion to the #1 bestselling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children series!

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 collection of original stories in this deluxe volume of Tales of the Peculiar, 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 compelling and truly peculiar anthology is the perfect gift for all book lovers.



Review Quotes

"[These tales] embody gentle, empowering messages: accept yourself and others; celebrate difference and oddity; never lose your sense of wonder." --Financial Times

About the Author



Ransom Riggs grew up in Florida but now makes his home in the land of peculiar children--Los Angeles. He was raised on a steady diet of ghost stories and British comedy, which probably explains the novels he writes.

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 byTed Hughes, more than twelve sets of stamps for The Royal Mail, and the glass etched doors for the Centre Court at Wimbledon. He is married to his wife Julia, and has two sons, Lewis and Hugh.
