內容簡介


從小,雅各的爺爺為他說的床邊故事十分與眾不同,他會一遍又一遍地說著自己童年時的詭異故事:
在英國威爾斯的孤兒院裡,院長是會變成大鳥的隼夫人,院童中有不用繩子綁住就會飄到空中的小女孩,後腦杓有第二張嘴的人,當然,還有一個透明的男孩。
小時候的雅各對爺爺的故事深信不疑,但隨著時間過去,長大的他認為那只是些重複曝光的舊照片,爺爺只是個想像力豐富的老人,畢竟,這世上怎麼會有飄在空中的小女孩呢?
但在那一天,他看到了。
雅各親眼看到爺爺故事中的「怪物」。

那一天,怪物在雅各面前襲擊爺爺、奪走他的生命。雅各開始明白,爺爺說的不是故事,是他真實經歷的一切。他也記得,在爺爺斷氣之前,抓著他的領子對他說:「去找大鳥、去圈套裡、去告訴他們發生了什麼事……」
於是,他決定完成爺爺的遺願,前往威爾斯的怪奇孤兒院、尋找隼夫人。不管這是否代表怪物將會盯上他,把他當作下一個目標……




A New York Times #1 best seller
On the New York Times Best Seller List for more than 52 consecutive weeks
Includes an excerpt from the much-anticipated sequel and an interview with author Ransom Riggs
A mysterious island.


An abandoned orphanage.


A strange collection of very curious photographs.


 
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a deserted island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. 

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.

“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
