Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children: The Graphic Novel

17333322Goodreads Says:    Ransom Riggs's haunting fantasy bestseller adapted to a graphic novel! 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.

My Thoughts:

-    This was a great adaptation of the book, but I felt like it sped through a lot of the story. I wish this had been in done in several or a couple of volumes.

-    I loved how the different time periods were depicted between black and white sketches and color images. 

-    The story is strange, peculiar, and wonderful! I loved every moment!

-    I liked how the old photographs from the original book was used in the panels. They add so much to the story! I'm still blown away that they are real.

-    Seeing a visual version of the book helped me to understand certain aspects of the story better.

-    I can't wait for Hollow City! I especially can't wait for the third book in this series to come out!


  1. I think I may need to try reading a graphic novel that's an adaptation. Maybe, it'd help me get into them more because I'd know the story.

  2. I'm thinking I might have liked this version better than the original story.

  3. I have the book on my TBR - I'll probably read it before the graphic novel, but it's good to know the graphic novel adaptation is good!
