Watch out: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (the sequel)

Miss Peregrinie's Home For Peculiar Children
the sequel
by Ransom Riggs
Release date: Spring 2013

Quirk Books is pleased to announce the sequel to Ransom Riggs’ bestselling YA novel MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN, which as of August 21, 2011 has been on the New York Times bestseller list for 9 weeks and is #1 on the Indiebound Bestseller list for the week of August 14th. Film rights to both books have been sold to Twentieth Century Fox with Chernin Entertainment producing.

"We are thrilled that Ransom and Quirk Books will be working together again to take readers and fans deeper into the world of MISS PEREGRINE,” says David Borgenight, President and Publisher of Quirk Books. “Ransom is an incredibly talented writer and visionary, and there's a lot more to explore together. I, for one, can't wait to see where second installment leads."

To be published in Spring 2013, an untitled sequel to MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN will continue the story of the children on the remote Welsh Island, incorporating a new set of vintage photos to help guide the story. “Ransom draws inspiration from photography, and he’s already collected more than a thousand images to help illuminate the story of the sequel,” says Jason Rekulak, Creative Director at Quirk. “Based on what he’s shared so far, I think we’ll be following these characters to some very peculiar places.”

The vintage photos are just one element of MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN that has garnered the book critical acclaim and has lead the book to be chosen as an Amazon’s Best Books of the Year So Far list and an IndieBound Summer Pick. “The vintage photo bug bit me hard while I was writing MISS PEREGRINE’S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN” says author Ransom Riggs, “and I've been collecting like a madman ever since. I think the photos in the second book will be even better than the first, and more exotic, too. It looks like the peculiar children have quite a journey ahead of them!” -per Quirk
