Does this book cover intrigue you? If the answer was yes, then we have something in
common. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a rare gem, but is better
viewed in physical form, not restrained in eBook. Why? Because it is riddled with
photographs and handwritten letters.
It is about Jacob, a 16-year-old Floridian who discovers his grandfather Abraham
dying in his backyard. A cryptic last words send him to Cairnholm, Wales, a small
island town that Abraham spent a few years on. After Jacob finds a 'cairn', or
ancient tomb, he ends up meeting the children his grandfather had told him about,
those that had only had powers that only belong in fairy tales.
