    8. Tales of the Peculiar are written by former Miss Peregrine s ward, Millard Nullings With the help of Mr Riggs, Millard invited us to read the peculiar tales about the peculiar times and people, starting with wealthy cannibals and finishing with a lonely giant All the tales had some spices of macabre and funny twists, peculiar history and of course a moral at the end.I liked them, but they weren t mind blowing or amazing to squeal It was great to read some back stories about the events and charac [...]
