Transcript of Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children

Setting Protagonist and Antagonist Conflict In my book there are two main settings. The first one is at the main character, Jacob's, grandfather's house. The other is on a remote island where Jacob and his dad are staying at the priests hole. The time for both of these takes place during the summer.

To start the book out Jacob's grandfather is telling him stories about all of these strange kids he met when he live at the home for peculiar children. Jacob doesn't believe his stories but when he grows up he finds out the truth. I think the conflict of the book is character vs. supernatural. I think this because the peculiars are trying to stay away from a wight who is danger to them. To be specific it is Jacob vs. wights. the wights do not exist in real life and are from a different world so they are super natural. Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children The theme of the book is that you should always help your friends and shouldn't be afraid to explore... don't give up on your dreams. The protagonist in my book is Jacob. Jacob is smart, creative, adventurous, curious, kind. He is always wondering and wanting new adventure, along the way he is kind and always thinks about others.

The antagonist in my book is the wight. The wight is cruel, sneaky, curious, un-loving, and shy. The wight doesn't like to walk around town or anything but is curious about Jacob and what he is doing. He wants to find the peculiar children. Theme Imagery One example of imagery is when Jacob says, " I'd emptied half of one and was losing feeling in my fingers." This is touch because it is describing how his fingers feel. by Ransom Riggs Figurative Language The first example of figurative language in my book is, "the words came slowly dripping like molasses." This is a simile comparing his words to molasses. It fits because it is saying how slowly his words are and molasses is gooey and thick.
Another example is, "The wind whistled through the gaps in the wall." This is a personification comparing wind and whistling. Wind can not actually whistle but a person can so therefor it is personification. Summary To conclude, in the beginning Jacob is on a mission to figure out what his grandfathers last words actually meant. Along the way he meats new friends and discovers what his grandfather was trying to tell him. What he realizes is that he needs his friends and needs to help them to when they are in danger. To find out what happens in the end I highly recommend this book. Just a random picture...
