A companion to the best-selling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, soon to be a major motion picture directed by Tim Burton.
Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales.
Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. These are but a few of the truly brilliant stories in Tales of the Peculiar - the collection of fairy tales known to hide information about the peculiar world, including clues to the locations of time loops - first introduced by Ransom Riggs in his number-one best-selling Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series.
Riggs now invites you to share his secrets of peculiar history with a collection of original stories in this deluxe volume of Tales of the Peculiar, as collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine and scholar of all things peculiar. This compelling, rich, and truly peculiar anthology is the perfect gift not only for fans but for all lovers of great storytelling.

What amazing tales!! I would even account them to being mini Brother's Grimm Tales!! Simon Callow truly made the experience memorable and simply amazing with his plummy voice, as my first audible book this was amazing and I truly recommend it!!
although there were mature concepts (e.g. death), these stories seemed like they were meant more for younger kids than the original series. the tales are similar to the fairy tales I had growing up....each with some type of scary outcome and a moral lesson to them. they weren't as emotion-provoking as the books and there were no cliff hangers to keep you going. on a positive note, the tales remained true to the style and themes of the books and were an enjoyable extension of peculiardom.
I absolutely loved Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and when I found out Ransom Riggs was coming out with this before the movie comes out I had to read it. Amazing stories. So well thought out. The footnote made it seem that much closer to Non-fiction. The book is beautifully made with an amazing silk thread book mark that I never got to use, finished it right away. Couldn't stop and will definitely read again. LOVE!!!
This is such a fun book of peculiar tales that anyone can grow to love. You don't have to have read the novels to fall in love with this unique treasure. The narration is excellent; full of life and propriety. 😊 great short stories for children as well as adults. I think they would be fun to listen to or read aloud during October halloween time!🎃 👻
