 ** A Geek Daddy received the featured product for free to review**
It is PECULIAR DAY and 20th Century Fox surprised me today by sending a courtesy edition of "The Art of Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" my way.  They obviously want to encourage me to #StayPeculiar !!!  This wonderful 192 page hardcover book provides a great behind-the-scenes look at how Tim Burton's film adaptation of the Ransom Riggs novel Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children all came together. The book chronicles the steps involved with the making the movie ranging from from script development and concept art creation to the efforts put into casting, set design, costumes, and visual effects.

 "The Art of Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" is filled with exclusive interviews, on-set photography, and also includes special introductions by Tim Burton and Ransom Riggs.  I always enjoy checking out movie concept art and the book is also filled with great illustrations that were used to inspire how the costumes and sets for Tim Burton's Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children would be portrayed in the film.  Here is one of my favorite concept art illustrations contained within the book:

 Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is a PG-13 rated fantasy adventure film directed by Tim Burton and scripted by Jane Goldman based upon the 2011 novel of the same name by author Ransom Riggs which 20th Century Fox is releasing at movie theaters across the USA on September 30, 2016.  In the film, a 16-year old boy named Jake follows a series of clues that he discovers after a family tragedy which lead him to a mysterious orphanage on a remote Welsh island.  There he discovers a community of children with unusual abilities and learns he is destined to protect them.
