Combining the long-standing history of fairy tales with the world of peculiars that Ransom Riggs developed in the Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children series, Tales of the Peculiar shares the lore specific to peculiar life through several short stories that entertain and educate.
The production of the physical book is quite stunning and is reminiscent of many tomes of fairy tales (trust me I have quite the collection of such books). The art contained within the pages and on the covers are captivating and further evoke the fairy tale nature of this collection of peculiar lore. The tales included in this collection utilize aspects of fairy tales us unpeculiars recognize while elaborating on them to make them tales unique to the peculiar world. I also enjoyed how the anthology was edited by Millard Nullings, as he is a connecting peculiar character from the main series, and it fits with his character well to cultivate such a collection.
Overall, I’d give it a 4.5 out of 5 stars.
