Since its publication in June 2011, this offbeat blend of supernatural fantasy and vintage photography has dominated the YA best-seller lists - and with a Tim Burton adaptation arriving in 2016, Miss Peregrine's Home for Pecular Children shows no signs of slowing down. 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 a long-abandoned house - yet still familar house. 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 desolate island for a good reason. And somehow - impossible though it seems - they may still be alive.Über den Autor:
