School Library Journal Reviews : SLJ Reviews 2016 October Gr 8 UpâA graphic novel adaptation of the second volume in the "Miss Peregrine" series. Readers might be lost in a new world if they start with this adaptation, but those familiar with the first installment will be immersed in a dark and exciting adventure. For newcomers, this format can serve as a gateway into Riggs's original books, while for existing fans, they are an opportunity to experience the stories and characters in a different way. Jean's loose yet detailed and evocative illustrations serve the narrative well, with echoes of traditional manga and a minimalist palette seen in of some of today's darker comics. The found photographs that were such an important factor of the original novels are featured throughout, providing an air of authenticity and mystery. VERDICT Riggs enthusiasts will enjoy this alternative, and with Tim Burton's film adaptation due in September 2016, libraries can expect new readers looking to discover the books.âBilly Parrott, New York Public Library.
