Happy Pub Day to MISS PEREGRINE!

misspfinalCongratulations to debut novelist and kt literary client Ransom Riggs, whose novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was officially released into the world yesterday! Entertainment Weekly gave it a B+ in its review, calling it “black and white and creepy all over,” and praising its “X-Men: First Class-meets-time-travel story line, David Lynchian imagery, and rich, eerie detail”.

And the AP wrote:

Riggs deftly moves between fantasy and reality, prose and photography — the children of the orphanage were inspired by actual vintage photographs that are sprinkled throughout the book — to create an enchanting and at times positively terrifying story. And while it has a decidedly young adult feel to it, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children” will assuredly please readers of all ages, particularly those who enjoy a healthy dose of gothic in their fiction.

Congrats, Ransom! To celebrate, as promised, a copy of the novel to the best question from last week’s Open Thread. While Mike’s question inspired a whole other blog post, I have to give the book to lalibrarylady86, who asked me about the shoes I was wearing when I first met Maureen Johnson. Lady, please email me at daphne.unfeasible@gmail.com with your mailing address, and I’ll send a finished copy of Miss Peregrine to you as soon as I get one!

And if I haven’t already convinced you to watch Ransom’s chilling book trailer, may I interest you in the director’s cut?
