Book Vs Movie
“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”
The Ransom Riggs Book vs the Tim Burton Film
The Margos delve into the world of fantasy in this episode discussing the Ranson Riggs’ Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children which spent 70 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list in 2012 and spawned two sequels Hollow City and Library of Souls.
Normally Margo P. doesn’t go for the scary stuff but when her preteen told her this was her favorite book of all time and though she will never see the movie (she loathes adaptations--go figure!) she thought we should give it a go.
The book is a wonderful journey of a young man exploring his grandfather’s old photographs that lead him on an amazing journey on a Welsh Island. Does that sound boring? Believe us, it is a very funny and entertaining read with incredible vintage photos telling the story and a very funny & charming lead in the character of Jacob Portman.
So how does the Tim Burton movie stack up compared to the YA novel?
In this episode we discuss:
