“Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales.”
In Tales of the Peculiar, we read myths of peculiars, collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine and scholar of all things peculiar. With every tale goes a beautiful picture, a morale of some sort and information about the peculiar world as well as hidden clues to locations of special peculiars. This collection is humorous, intriguing and made me smile after every curious tale.
Not only are the tales wonderful for teens, but I think adults and even children would enjoy the wonderful and fascinating stories in the Tales. I am no writer myself but I sure wished I had such a great imagination as Ransom Riggs as I read the book *:*
I so fell in love with the bed-time-story-feeling I got when I started, that I actually read a few stories to my bf who was equally impressed and mesmerized by cannibals, wandering islands and living nightmares. With 192 pages, it was an easy enough read that was over way too soon ❤
I can see myself 15 years from now reading these tales to my own children. You learn a lesson with each of the stories: the importance of friendship and piece, to be more patient and accepting of other people who are not like yourself and much more and I feel compelled to tell all of you to buy this collection.
