Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs is a collection of short stories set prior to the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series. It is a joy to read, especially if one has already read the series, although a person could read this book as a stand-alone. Each character is explained with detail that really allows the reader to visualize their predicament. The book gives background information on the first ymbrynes and other series characters as told through the viewpoint of Millard Nullings, a resident of Miss Peregrine’s home. Riggs did a wonderful job carrying on the fantasy and appeal of the series in this beautifully written prequel.

Just no. The cover and the type setting are very cool, but the content is awful. Don't even bother. Very messed up stories.
