Ransom Riggs will continue the story of his best selling series in a new trilogy set in America.
Datton Books, publisher for Young Readers, has confirmed that a new Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trilogy is coming soon. Author Ransom Riggs will be bringing Jacob, Miss Peregrine, and the peculiars to America in this new trilogy. The first book is set to publish in the fall of 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,” Riggs said 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 of the series, Julie Strauss-Gabel, has also said, “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.”
The original Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children was published back in 2011, and was instantly a bestseller. It stayed on the New York Times best seller list for over a hundred weeks, even landing a run as #1. The book was followed by Library of Souls in 2014 and Hollow City in 2015, which wrapped up the series.
On September 30th, a Tim Burton film adaption of the first book hit theaters across the world, grossing more than $199 million to date.
