A mysterious island.

 An abandoned orphanage.

 A strange collection of very curious photographs.
 It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. 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. 

A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
 
“A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story.”—John Green, New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars
 
“With its X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail, it’s no wonder Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has been snapped up by Twentieth Century Fox. B+”—Entertainment Weekly
 
“‘Peculiar’ doesn’t even begin to cover it. Riggs’ chilling, wondrous novel is already headed to the movies.”—People
 
“You’ll love it if you want a good thriller for the summer. It’s a mystery, and you’ll race to solve it before Jacob figures it out for himself.”—Seventeen

Interjú Gálvölgyi Judittal, a könyv fordítójával

Hajdanában egy szigeten, a világ túlsó felén igen különös gyerekek éltek. Mind együtt egy nagy, öreg házban, egy elvarázsolt helyen, ahol senki sem lelhetett rájuk. Nem olyanok voltak, mint más emberek. Káprázatos dolgokra voltak képesek.
És mindre vigyázott egy bölcs, vén madár...

Egy családi tragédia után a tizenhat esztendős Jacob egy távoli, Wales partjainál lévő szigetre kerül, ahol felfedezi Vándorsólyom kisasszony különleges gyermekek számára alapított otthonának omladozó romjait. Ahogy végigjárja az elhagyott hálótermeket és folyosókat, rájön, hogy az itt rejtegetett árvák többek voltak különösnél. Talán veszélyesek. Lehet, hogy jó okból zárták őket el egy kietlen szigeten. És valamiképpen – legyen ez bármilyen valószínűtlen is – talán még mindig élnek.

Az izgalmas regény az utóbbi évek legeredetibb fantáziavilágába vezeti főhősét. A művet az illusztrálására felhasznált réges-régi, ám eredeti fotók egészen különleges hangulatúvá varázsolják. Megérdemelten vezette hetekig a New York Times és az Amazon sikerlistáit, és többek között a Publisher’s Weekly és a USA Today bestsellerei közé is bekerült. Most a nyomtatott változattal egyidejűleg a Kossuth Kiadó e-könyvként is megjelenteti – kizárólag a Multimédiaplázában.

Ransom Riggs recria o mundo peculiar e apresenta algo totalmente novo

 

Mapa dos dias é a aguardada continuação de uma das séries de maior sucesso dos últimos anos. Para os leitores que estavam com saudades do universo mágico criado por Ransom Riggs, esta sequência vai além do prometido e descortina um cenário ainda mais rico, com novas criaturas, mistérios que envolvem todo o mundo peculiar e uma infinidade de aventuras a serem exploradas. Fascinante e imperdível para os amantes da série e para os novos fãs que certamente virão.

Jacob voltou para sua casa nos Estados Unidos após vencer os etéreos no Recanto do Demônio, mas ainda não sabe como conciliar a vida normal e tudo o que viveu. Agora que Emma, a srta. Peregrine e seus outros amigos vivem com ele no presente, em sua casa na Flórida, vamos acompanhá-los no processo de reconstrução do mundo peculiar.

Mas essa ideia cai para segundo plano quando eles descobrem um bunker subterrâneo na casa onde seu avô morou. A partir daí, surgem pistas de uma organização secreta que caçava etéreos e ajudava peculiares por todos os Estados Unidos, e isso os inspira a sair em uma missão tão perigosa quanto significativa por esse território desconhecido. Um mundo novo, sem regras nem ymbrynes; um país em que clãs vivem em conflito e em que cada fenda temporal esconde criaturas nunca antes vistas.

A série de Ransom Riggs é sucesso absoluto no Brasil e no mundo, tendo conquistado milhões de leitores graças a uma encantadora combinação de mistério, romance, aventura, viagem no tempo e à sombria seleção de fotografias antigas, da coleção pessoal do autor – desta vez, muitas delas coloridas.

A companion to the New York Times bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, soon to be a major motion picture directed by Tim Burton.
