4.5 out of 5 Stars I admit I am pretty late to the party on this book. I happened to be in a book store and finally grabbed Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children since I have been wanting to read it for ages. I am so late in fact, that the movie is due to … More Book Review: Miss Peregrines School for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
About a month ago my son and I did a camping trip over in Central Oregon, just outside of Sunriver.
