Miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children

Miss peregrine’s home for peculiar children

Movie review

Tim Burton’s film has been awaited for a long time. Firstly, because it’s a Tim Burton film. Secondly, because for two years it was absolutely unclear if filming was really going on or if it was a rumour. And thirdly, because “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” is an adaptation of the first book in Ransom Riggs’ very peculiar trilogy. What makes his books special is that they are illustrated with vintage (and sometimes very creepy) photographs that the writer himself and his friends collected, and it was these that served as the author’s inspiration for writing the books. So, both the books and the movie tell the story of one ordinary boy named Jacob, who has listened since childhood to his grandfather’s extraordinary stories about equally extraordinary children. Among them, for example, a girl who could hold fire, a girl who could fly, an invisible boy, and others. And, as you have already guessed, these stories were not made up. We recommend to watch together with the children-teenagers, and just have time to read together with them the whole trilogy.
