Book Rave

Cryptic and worth it.

I’m only 1/3 of the way in, if that, and: I love it. I judged a book by its cover and my decision is utterly paying off. I’ve read W.G. Sebald. So instead of my brows flying up in consternation/skepticism upon realizing that Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children comes with photographs (and other “found” treasures), I know such a combination can absolutely work. And: I recommend this book—despite not having (yet) read the last page. It’s also the perfect read for taking one’s mind off of a yellow jacket’s brutal sting.

Seriously—the reader is in masterful hands and this first novel is going in the “future collection” for my 3 1/2 year old, alongside CS Lewis, Tolkien, Aiken, Pullman, DiTerlizzi, Zilpha Kealtey Snyder (all hail), DuPrau, Birdsall, L’Engle, Rowling.

PS. Her feet are not touching the ground…
