Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children



Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is a mystery about a strange orphanage on an island in Wales.  Teenage Jacob seeks to solve the mysteries of the island after listening to his grandfather’s tales and seeing photos of the children who lived there.  As Jacob tries to determine what happened to the orphans, he finds himself in a supernatural and thrilling world.

This chapter book is a good pick for grades 8 and up.  Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children spent a year on the New York Times bestseller list in 2011, so it is likely to be a book many students know.  I would recommend it to students to use in literature circles or book clubs.  The book includes photographs and letters to mix up the writing style, which is something students will appreciate.
