Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children book/movie Review

Book Review

Notice: This movie might be disturbing to younger children.

Rating (movie): PG_13

Rating (Book): Young Adult

Miss Peregrine’s home for Peculiar Children is a young adult book, By Ransom Riggs, and was also made into a movie (screenplay by Tim Burton and directed by Tim Burton)

The movie is slightly odd (You are probably thinking “Obviously, Lizzy! Its a Tim Burton Movie!”) Honestly, I thought the book was better.

It’s about a boy named Jake and his grandfather, Abe Portman, and a house filled with children from all over the world. They are each “Peculiar” or, strange. There is Emma, who can harnest fire and has a fire touch, and then there’s Millard, who is invisable, and then Enoch, who can bring clay soilders to life, and Olive, who is filled with air, Bronwyn, who has the straingth of ten men, and her brother, Victor, with the same peculiarity. And Hugh, who has bees living inside him. Oh, and we can’t forget Miss Peregrine! She’s practicly unforgettable. Her peculiarity is in her name. She is called a Ymbrane, and she can turn into a bird. More specifically, an Peregrine Falcon.

There are a few things that I have found that where in the book but changed in the movie.

  1. They switched Olive and Bronwyn’s ages
  2. They made Enoch older
  3. They switched Olive and Emma’s Peculiarities.
  4. They made Miss Peregrine older
  5. They made it so the monsters ate eyeballs. They did not in the book. (EW)
  6. They made it so Olive could not control her Peculiarity. In the book, Emma could control her Peculiarity.

That’s all I can think of!
