Ransom Riggs has written a book titled "Tales of the Peculiar". It is a collection of original stories about "peculiars", and includes a tale about the very first Ymbryne, and how she began to create time loops. See more »


When Jake first sees the children at the dilapidated house, Claire, Olive, Emma and the twins are seen peeking out from behind the walls. In the next scene, the children present are Bronwyn, Olive, Emma and the twins (and Millard)--the only children sent to collect Jake, according to Miss Peregrine. Claire and Bronwyn were switched momentarily. See more »

Delightful Original Adventure
15 November 2016 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Jake (Asa Butterfield) is an outcast teenager that adores his grandfather Abraham 'Abe' Portman (Terence Stamp) that used to tell stories of the orphanage in Wales where he was raised to him. When Abe is murdered in his house in Florida and has his eyes removes, Jake sees a monster and his parents take him to a psychologist. Jake asks to go to Wales to visit the orphanage and his psychologist agrees. His father Franklin Portman (Chris O'Dowd) travels with him to Wales and Jake discovers that the orphanage was bombed in 1943 by the Germans. When he decides to visit the ruins of the orphanage again, Abe finds a girl and soon he learns that the orphanage, the headmaster Miss Peregrine (Eva Green) and the children still exist trapped in a time loop. But they are in danger since monsters are hunting them down. And Jake has the gift of seeing monsters. What will Jake do?

"Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children" is a delightful original adventure directed by Tim Burton. The fantasy is a sort of X-Men and is highly entertaining with lovely characters and evil villains. Despite the confused idea of time loops, the film entertains adults and children. My vote is eight.

Title (Brzil):"O Orfanato da Srta. Peregrine Para Crianças Peculiares" ("The Orphanage of Miss Peregrine for Peculiar Children")
