I loved Ransom Riggs’ YA series. I loved the imagination used, the world building, the character’s transformations. I loved the mystery and action. I cried and laughed and sung with the characters throughout all three books. Then the trilogy came to a close, and I was distraught about whether I would ever find a book (or dare I ask, a series?) that I loved so much. Then I found out he was adding a bit more to the Peculiar World with Tales of the Peculiar (Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children 0.5). Let me tell you, I was not disappointed. The strange characters from the peculiar world return in the book and it was amazing. Throughout the tales of the book, Millard Nullings, tells us stories that so many peculiar children grew up listening and learning from. Millard even adds some footnotes in each tale that he finds important for us to know. We learn about the history of the peculiar world and we get to live for just a bit longer in Peculiardom. Through grim tales about ghosts to rather funny tales about cannibals, I was enthralled with the stories. I just wish the book was a bit longer..
