Listeners, prepare to enter the Peculiardom—Hear the story that inspired the major motion picture, plus a new collection of tales full of peculiar history.
Sixteen-year-old Jacob Portman has grown up listening to the peculiar tales told by his grandfather—stories of children with strange abilities who live on a remote Welsch island. He no longer believes these childhood stories—that is, until he travels to the island himself, after his grandfather’s sudden, tragic death. There, he discovers the peculiar children, still living at the orphanage his grandfather spoke about. The children are in danger, hunted by monsters for their special abilities. The more Jacob learns about the island, the more family secrets are revealed and Jacob discovers he might share these peculiar talents—and he may be in danger, too.
