Ransom Riggs and His Peculiar Foot

A while back I heard from a fellow with the awesome name of Ransom Riggs. It seems he was working on a project and needed to find authors who were terrible writers when they were kids. John Green had told him about me.

Er, thanks, John.

(Here's Moi and John, who is standing on a chair, with our agent, Jodi Reamer.)

Oh! And here's an interview I did with John, eons ago when we were both practically children.

Anyway, Ransom set aside that project to work on another one, namely a YA novel with the awesome name of MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN.


It's an amazing book and was recently reviewed in Entertainment Weekly and People magazine, and is already a NY TIMES bestseller!

Here's a spooky preview. . .

On Sunday, we went to Ransom's very first book signing at Dark Delicacies in Burbank, CA . . .

Peepy thought that she was the main draw, but then Ransom took the stage . . .

This is what he looked like when he read . . .

Meanwhile . . . this how he sounded and what his foot was doing during the reading . . .
