A companion to the 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 volume of Tales of the Peculiar, as collected and annotated by Millard Nullings, ward of Miss Peregrine and scholar of all things peculiar. Featuring stunning illustrations from world-renowned artist Andrew Davidson, this compelling, rich, and truly peculiar anthology is the perfect gift for not only fans, but for all lovers of great storytelling.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Ten twisted tales, presented as a history book ‘for peculiar eyes only.’ Each of Riggs’ mythical characters—from the farm boy who becomes a locust to the princess who conceals her forked tongue—offers a glimpse of what it’s like to be different in a straight-laced world.”


  • “These tales, which often reference events in the earlier novels, are alternately droll, somber, and a bit horrific, and they’re sure to appeal to fans of the series.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Stories that provide a glimpse into the fascinating past of peculiars and Peculiardom…[and] center on characters who are different, who don’t fit in, who aren’t accepted by those around them, and who overcome these challenges and come to embrace who they truly are…A perfect gateway for new readers to enter the world Riggs has created. Recommended for all libraries.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Peculiar readers…will find a number of affecting adventures…Clever tweaks abound, and endings are mostly happy.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “These stories enhance the mythology Riggs has created around “peculiardom”…Adhering to fairy-tale tradition, most of the stories offer a lesson couched within a fascinating, and frequently dark, account of a princess, ghost, giant, or shape-shifter.”
