Very much enjoyed this book of Peculiar fairy tales. The tales are enjoyable, giving both a wider world view of their experiences along with lessons learned (hint: don‘t reveal you are Peculiar) and the artwork is GORGEOUS - not photos like the novels but amazing black and white drawings/etchings. These stories don‘t fit in a specific place within the series so pick it up anytime you like! You won‘t regret it.

7.25.19: A nice complement to the series! I enjoyed that the stories were diverse and came from all over. I have a few favorites, but all the stories were good!

7.24.19: I thought I had finished the series after I read the third book, but it turns out there's this prequel, a fourth book, and a fifth one on the way🙈 I highly recommend the series if you haven't read it yet. It's phenomenal!!

GondorGirl Fair warning- the fourth book is slooooooow. The last few chapters got me excited for the next book, but I almost DNFed it several times. 4w
biblioatsea @GondorGirl thanks for the heads up!! That is really good to know. I struggle with books that are slow, but I definitely want to finish the series 4w

I came on to this book very recently. And the synopsis really intrigued me. The stories are really fun to read, sometimes predictable and sometimes not. I finished the book in two seatings, specifically speaking in a day. It has some very simpler writing and really interesting stories. Do read it.
4.3/5🌟

I forgot just how much I adored Ransom Riggs and his whole “Peculiar” world! This book is set up in a way where it‘s meant to be a book of folktales, fables, & myths meant to be read to Peculiar children. Just delightful writing! Each story was a complete jem ....some creepy, some sad, some funny. It was a real “comfort” read for me.

I think I may have enjoyed this collection of Peculiar lore more than I enjoyed the second and third books of the #PeculiarChildren trilogy. (I‘m still not over Riggs making his protagonist Jewish then failing to accurately reference it. We don‘t have ministers!!! We have rabbis!!!! How did no one catch that error????)

Audiobook is a great format for this collection. Simon Callow is wonderful!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ • #YA #shortfiction

JamieArc It is interesting to me that someone who is a writer can go through life not knowing it‘s a rabbi, not minister...🤷🏻‍♀️ (edited) 10mo
lauren.lerner Very interesting indeed, @JamieArc. And apparently no editor or early reader realized it either. 🤔 10mo

Beautiful hardback edition, with lovely artwork at the start of each short story. The tales themselves were fun and interesting to read, although I found the writing a bit lacking compared to the original series. The creepy tale The Girl Who Could Tale Nightmares was definitely my favorite of the bunch.

I was NOT a fan in the beginning. After the first few stories, it hits a stride. The last few are pretty cute. Not great, but cute.

I haven‘t actually read the Miss Peregrine books, so I have a feeling these stories would have meant more to a reader who already had an emotional attachment to this world. While the footnotes occasionally felt overly-precious, the stories themselves were compelling. Not a slam-dunk for me, but good enough that I‘m glad I read it.

Kali I love the miss peregrine books! It's really cool how he ties a bunch of random old photographs together to create this story. They're definitely worth the read! 1y

This is an anthology of 10 peculiar folklore, annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine; a time before Miss Peregrine gave the peculiar children a home. An intriguing and engaging read, and definitely recommended to all peculiar fans. .

This was adorable. Just the book I needed to dip in and out of over a hectic term! Links in gorgeously to the trilogy but the stories are definitely enough to stand on their own too.

This collection of tales is completely delightful in true fairy tale style. It has essentially nothing to do with the trilogy and stands alone quite nicely. The audiobook narrator comes across as a kindly British uncle, thus enhancing the experience. I definitely recommend this one.

Reading playlist. I love listening to film soundtracks when I‘m reading. Headphones in, no distractions, other than the odd sing along.

Though I didn't enjoy this short read quite as much as the Peculiar Children trilogy, I am always pleased by Ransom Riggs' writing style. A couple of the Tales were truly haunting (like the allegory of the cannibals), while others fell a bit flat for me. On the whole, I'm glad I read it.

#BookNSnack! @MrBook and I discovered a fabulous smoothie shop today. And they also sell delicious homemade soups! I'll be back for that! ? My smoothie was delicious—called "Yogi's Choice", it's made of mango, strawberries, banana, and guava nectar. I LOVE guava!❤️ ??Yum yum!?

P.S. Please note the fabulous irony between the chapter title and the quote on the wall! ???

LiteraryinLititz The Wonder is good but slow. Maybe if you're coming off of another slow read you might want a palate cleanser? If so, I recommend the Nicola Yoon. Much faster paced! 2y

I had bought this book when it came out but I was in school and had no time to read it. When I came home from college last month for the summer, I picked it up as a book to read on side of anything book and I absolutely loved it. I especially liked the final story in the book, it gave me all the feels recognizing it from the series. ❤️

Miss Peregrine's Trilogy has been so good, and of course I had to add this copy to my Bookshelf ?It's a quick read and the Illustrations are beautiful ?I hope the author continues writing about the Peculiars ?// Diese Buch hat mir sehr gut gefallen, ebenso wie auch schon die Trilogie. Deswegen durfte dieses Buch natürlich nicht in meiner Sammlung fehlen !
