if it’s too difficult for grown-ups, write for children


misspfinalCongrats to Ransom Riggs, whose debut novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children has just been named to the Top Ten of the Summer 2011 Kids’ Indie Next List! The review reads:

“The search for his grandfather’s past leads Jake to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where a home for orphaned and ‘peculiar’ children once stood. Jake’s grandfather’s stories — about invisible children, children who can command fire, children with enormous strength, and the monsters who hunt them — can’t possibly be true, but Jake’s search of the island proves otherwise. This well-wrought story has just the right amount of suspense, scare-your-pants-off detail, and smart, compassionate children searching for a path forward in a twisted, topsy-turvy world.”

And if you haven’t seen it already, you must check out Ransom’s youtube channel. He’s a very talented filmmaker as well as a writer, and his films are just stunning. Here’s the latest:

Cool, huh?
