Hello everyone, from New York Comic Con! This weekend, your friendly neighborhood Book Smugglers are at the Javits Center, enjoying the panels, exhibitors, and assorted sundries. While we’re out, we are thrilled to run a giveaway of the paperback edition of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, plus Hollow City posters, courtesy of Quirk books!
ABOUT THE BOOKS:
(Book 2 – synopsis from EW.com)
September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she’s trapped in the body of a bird.
The extraordinary journey that began in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner. And before Jacob can deliver the peculiar children to safety, he must make an important decision about his love for Emma Bloom.
Hollow City draws readers into a richly imagined world of telepathy and time loops, of sideshows and shapeshifters—a world populated with adult “peculiars,” murderous wights, and an entire menagerie of uncanny animals. Like its predecessor, this second novel in the Peculiar Children series blends thrilling fantasy with never-before-published vintage photography to create a one-of-akind reading experience.
Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
A mysterious island.
An abandoned orphanage.
A strange collection of vintage photography.
It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, a spine-tingling YA fantasy illustrated with haunting black-and-white photography.
The hardcover edition spent more than 52 consecutive weeks on the New York Times Best-Seller List. This beautifully designed paperback edition features an exclusive interview with author Ransom Riggs and a sneak preview of the upcoming Miss Peregrine novel.
