Book Trailer for Hollow City Debuts on Entertainment Weekly!

Hey there Miss Peregrine fans! 

Back in 2011, Ransom Riggs introduced readers to the world of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children.

With the sequel on the horizon (Hollow City comes out next month!), we released the first of three trailers spotlighting specific characters. This one highlights Hugh and his bees.

The trailer debuted on Entertainment Weekly yesterday afternoon, and now, it's available for you to share. Have a look, and enjoy! Get ready. Hollow City is coming

Let's Have A "Little Women" Christmas!

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without at least one viewing of Little Women.  Even though this isn't your typical Christmas movie, the 1994 version has some of the best Christmas scenes full of food, family, and laughter.  And, don't even get me started on the book. Making something out of nothing is what the March sisters do best, and Christmas is no exception.  Carols will be sung.  Gifts will be exchanged.  Food will be eaten, and the poor will be helped.  Even times of upheaval cannot dampen the girls' holiday spirit. Here's how to celebrate the March family way!
