Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Tales of the Peculiar by Ransom Riggs, read by Simon Callow, Garrick Hagon and Bruce Mann.
In this collection of fairy tales, Ransom Riggs invites you to uncover hidden legends of the peculiar world. A fork-tongued princess, a girl who talks to ghosts and wealthy cannibals who dine on the discarded limbs of peculiars are just a few of the characters whose stories will have you hooked.
This compelling, rich and truly peculiar anthology is the perfect gift for fans - and for all lovers of great storytelling.
See the movie! Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, directed by the visionary Tim Burton and starring Judi Dench, Eva Green and Samuel L Jackson, will be released in summer 2016.

Praise for Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children: "A tense, moving, and wondrously strange first novel. The photographs and text work together brilliantly to create an unforgettable story." (John Green, author of The Fault in Our Stars)
Definitely - even if the book wasn't as fun, Simon Callow's reading of it is out of this world!
The cleverness of the stories and the morality of the characters
All of them, the narration was perfect in every way.
Some of the stories are quite sad, but they usually have an upbeat ending - even the last one which is should supposedly end sadly has a happier ending added by "the editor".
This is such a lovely book to listen to - one of my favourite ever audio books.
Loved hearing Millard's defining collection of the Peculiar Tales. Simon Callow's marvellous treacly, plummy accent fits perfectly.
