Miss Peregrine author returns with illustrated collection of fairytales Ransom Riggs is to open the door to Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children a little wider with a new book of fairytales set in the fantastical world. Riggs’s bestselling novel – which is being adapted for film by Tim Burton, with a script by Jane Goldman and starring Samuel L Jackson and Eva Green – has sold over 5m copies around the world. Set on an island off the coast of Wales, and illustrated using vintage photographs found by Riggs, it sees 16-year-old Jacob discover the ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children on the island, as well as more details about the children, who may still be alive. Riggs has followed the novel up with two sequels, Hollow City and Library of Souls, and the children’s books arm of Penguin Random House has announced that it has acquired an illustrated collection of original fairytales set in the same world, for publication this autumn. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children grew out of Riggs’s hobby of collecting old photos.
