'Having defeated the monstrous threat that nearly destroyed the peculiar world, Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida. Except now Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends are with him, and doing their best to blend in. But carefree days of beach visits and normalling lessons are soon interrupted by a discovery—a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe.

Clues to Abe’s double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge, secrets long hidden in plain sight. And Jacob begins to learn about the dangerous legacy he has inherited—truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop.'

This book was awesome.

I love the peculiar children series, so I was equal parts excited and nervous about this book. As it turns out I needn't have been nervous, it was amazing.

I loved getting to catch up with al of my favourite characters once again. Having this book set in America gave the characters more freedom to grow and learn more about themselves and each other. It was really great getting to see the dynamics between the characters shift as this story progressed.

I had some genuine laugh out loud moments as I was reading this book. See the peculiar's trying to navigate the modern world and experiencing this that we do everyday for the very first time made for some really wonderful scenes.

One of the things I love most a this series is the vintage photographs scattered throughout the books. Not only did this book have these amazing photographs perfectly woven into the story, but for the first time they were in colour. I always find these photographs and the stories that Ransom Riggs has created for them fascinating and these new coloured photographs were no different.

I honestly loved this book and I am really hoping that we are going to get more stories about the peculiar children set in America. This is a series I don't want to end.

A Map Of Days by Ransom Riggs is the perfect addition to the amazing Peculiar Children series.
