Ransom Riggs is bringing the story of "the peculiars" to America and revealing more of their secret history in the new world for the series' second trilogy.
A new Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trilogy is coming, publisher Dutton Books for Young Readers said Thursday. The new three-book arc continues the adventures of Jacob Portman, Miss Peregrine and the peculiars by bringing the story to America. The untitled first book will publish in fall 2017.
“The first three novels introduced the peculiars and their world, but peculiardom is vast, its history is long, and there’s so much left to discover,” said author Ransom Riggs in a statement. “I can’t wait to delve deeper, and to bring the story to America — which, as it turns out, is a much more peculiar place than anyone realized!”
Added editor Julie Strauss-Gabel, “Stepping into the peculiar world has been a true gift to me and to millions of readers. I am overjoyed to continue this amazing adventure and discover the many peculiar stories that await Jacob and his friends. I can imagine no better tour guide through America than Ransom Riggs, whose transporting imagination and enormous heart have made so many so proud to be peculiar.”
