About the Author

Ransom Riggs is the author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Quirk, 2011), a New York Times best seller with more than 2 million copies sold, as well as its best-selling sequel, Hollow City (Quirk, 2013). He grew up in Florida but now makes his home in the land of peculiar children-Los Angeles. He was raised on a steady diet of ghost stories and British comedy, which probably explains the novels he writes. There's a nonzero chance he's in your house right now, watching you from underneath the bed. (Go ahead and check. We'll wait.) If not, you can always find him on Twitter @ransomriggs.

"A tasty adventure for any reader with an appetite for the...peculiar."-Kirkus Reviews
