Yet more book trailers are us! Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

What happens when a screenwriter turned filmmaker turned novelist gets a book published? He makes an incredible book trailer, that’s what. Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, is also just an interesting person. He collects odd, old, discarded photographs and as a photo-essayist, has a love-affair with devastating and disturbing images. What’s not to like?

I have O’Dell over at Book Twirps to thank for introducing me to both the book and the trailer. The production value is very high on this one, I mean, the man traveled to Belgium to shoot it! It’s tough to compete with that… and I’ll watch the trailer a few more times after I get over my initial jealousy.

    I JUST got the book from the library. I’ll let you know what I think.
