From The Hollywood Reporter: 3 New Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children Books in the Works!

A new Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children trilogy is coming, publisher Dutton Books for Young Readers said Thursday. The new three-book arc continues the adventures of Jacob Portman, Miss Peregrine and the peculiars by bringing the story to America. The untitled first book will publish in fall 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,” said author Ransom Riggs 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!”
