Description

A companion to the New York Times bestselling Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, soon to be a major motion picture directed by Tim Burton. Before Miss Peregrine gave them a home, the story of peculiars was written in the Tales. Wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars. A fork-tongued princess. These are but a few of the truly brilliant stories in Tales of the Peculiar-the collection of fairy tales known to hide information about the peculiar world, including clues to the locations of time loops-first introduced by Ransom Riggs in his #1 bestselling Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series. Riggs now invites you to share his secrets of peculiar history, with a collection of original stories in this deluxe audio volume of Tales of the Peculiar, as collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine and scholar of all things peculiar. Featuring narration by Simon Callow, this compelling and truly peculiar anthology is the perfect gift for not only fans, but for all booklovers. Read by Simon Callow, with Bruce Mann and Garrick Hagon "[These tales] embody gentle, empowering messages: accept yourself and others; celebrate difference and oddity; never lose your sense of wonder." -Financial Times "With a Victorian style for writing and a capacity for subtle humor, the tales read as cautionary fables, rich with peril and phantasy, and will be enjoyed by teens and adults alike." -GeekDad.com From the Compact Disc edition.

Professional reviews

"British actor Simon Callow delivers a delightfully whimsical performance of the collected stories that comprise this companion to the hugely popular Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children series. His refined pronunciation gives the impression that the stories are, in fact, revered folklore handed down through the ages. Even as Callow maintains the scholarly tone of the omniscient narrator, he effortlessly navigates between Norwegian, American, and Irish accents, and perhaps most memorably, the voices of fantastical creatures. Bruce Mann and Garrick Hagon read the titles of each tale as well as the notes supposedly written by Millard Nullings, a central character in the Peculiar Children series. Devoted fans as well as newcomers to the world of the peculiar will be equally enchanted. E.M.C. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
