Together for the first time, here is the #1 New York Times best seller Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children and its two sequels, Hollow City and Library of Souls. All three are packaged in a beautifully designed slipcase.

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in this groundbreaking novel, which mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling new kind of reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob Portman journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

Hollow City: September 3, 1940. Ten peculiar children flee an army of deadly monsters. And only one person can help them—but she's trapped in the body of a bird. The extraordinary adventure continues as Jacob Portman and his newfound friends journey to London, the peculiar capital of the world. There, they hope to find a cure for their beloved headmistress, Miss Peregrine. But in this war-torn city, hideous surprises lurk around every corner.

Library of Souls: A boy, a girl, and a talking dog. They're all that stands between the sinister wights and the future of peculiar children everywhere. Jacob Portman ventures through history one last time to rescue the peculiar children from a heavily guarded fortress. He's joined by girlfriend and firestarter Emma Bloom, canine companion Addison MacHenry, and some very unexpected allies.

    Comments about Miss Peregrines Peculiar Children Boxed Set:

    I was excited to read this book series but it just wasn't what I expected.. it seemed like a book series perhaps for ages around 10-15? I was able to read it but not get into the story and most likely wouldn't give it a second read, but if you're between 10-15 and like those sort of books then it'll probably be great for you!

          Comments about Miss Peregrines Peculiar Children Boxed Set:

          My daughter borrowed the first book from a friend. From there, she was hooked. She couldn't find the second or third book in the library but since she loves reading, I bought her the book set. She was over the moon and has re-read all the books (especially Book 2).

            Comments about Miss Peregrines Peculiar Children Boxed Set:

            this boxed set is very readable - it is fast moving and creative. It is not classically written (imo) but certainly makes me want to keep reading. I am an adult but it would appeal to teenage readers especially boys who don't often read. Rates up there with Day After Tomorrow and Hunger Games series. Very enjoyable!
