Purchase: [Amazon] [Chapters/Indigo]
Tim Burton’s adaptation of the Ransom Riggs novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children is one of the most anticipated films of the year—and this lavishly illustrated companion offers a thrilling behind-the-scenes look. Written and designed by two of Burton’s longtime collaborators, this book chronicles every step in the making of the film—from script development and casting to concept art, set design, costumes, visual effects, and much more. Filled with exclusive interviews, on-set photography, and special introductions by Tim Burton and Ransom Riggs, this deluxe hardcover volume is a terrific gift for peculiars of all ages!

The Art of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Leah Gallo is the perfect must-have for fans of Ransom Riggs' phenomenal debut series! A stunning visual title, in a gorgeously packaged hardcover, the title gives readers an in-depth behind the scenes look at the filming of the highly anticipated Tim Burton title, interviews with the cast, concept art, set designs, costumes, and more.  Being an all-time fan of the series from the day the first title was first distributed to book bloggers, I was obviously not only eager to watch the highly anticipated film but to also have an early sneak peek of what was to come. I'd also easily pictured the title turning into a big screen phenomena, but additionally (and surprisingly) pictured that only Tim Burton would be capable of bringing this well-written cast of characters and world to life. Going through The Art of Miss Peregrine's not only solidified my earlier opinion on the matter, but the sneak peek at the costumes, the characters, and their interactions with each other has built me up irrevocably with suspense on the film. I positively can't wait for September 30th!

Perfect for movie goers and fans of Ransom Riggs' stunning debut series, The Art of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Leah Gallo is an absolute collector must-have!
