Jacob et les enfants particuliers sont désemparés : Miss Peregrine, changée en Oiseau, est prisonnière de son état, suite à l'attaque des Estres, des âmes damnés, sur l'île de Cainholm. Les voilà donc livrés à eux-mêmes ! Après avoir essuyé une tempête entre Cainholm et le continent, Jacob et ses amis s'échouent sur une rive de Grande-Bretagne, en 1940, alors que la Seconde Guerre mondiale fait rage. Ils sont aussitôt pris en chasse par des Estres déguisés en soldats, qui veulent à tout prix capturer l'Oiseau. Les enfants fuient à travers la forêt, et se réfugient dans une boucle temporelle abandonnée par une certaine Miss Wren. Là vit une curieuse ménagerie d'animaux singuliers. Parmi eux, Addison, un chien parlant, un ému-rafe croisement improbable entre une girafe et un âne , des poules qui pondent des oeufs explosifs, et un chimpanzé fantasque. Addison leur explique que Miss Wren est partie à Londres pour tenter de libérer ses soeurs Ombrunes, capturées par les Estres. Et il leur apprend que c'est la dernière Ombrune en liberté. Jacob, Emma, Enoch, Olive, Bronwyn, Millard, Horace, Hugh décident de la rejoindre au plus vite, car elle est la seule personne capable de redonner à la directrice de l'orphelinat sa forme humaine...

With the candid quirkiness of Awkward Family Photos and the confessional intimacy of PostSecret, Ransom Riggs's Talking Pictures is a haunting collection of antique found photographs—with evocative inscriptions that bring these lost personal moments to life—from the author of the New York Times bestselling illustrated novel Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. Each image in Talking Pictures reveals a singular, frozen moment in a person’s life, be it joyful, quiet, or steeped in sorrow. Yet the book’s unique depth comes from the writing accompanying each photo: as with the caption revealing how one seemingly random snapshot of a dancing couple captured the first dance of their 40-year marriage, each successive inscription shines like a flashbulb illuminating a photograph’s particular context and lighting up our connection to the past.

In the context of the current explosion of interest in Gothic literature and popular culture, this interdisciplinary collection of essays explores for the first time the rich and long-standing relationship between war and the Gothic. Critics have described the global Seven Year’s War as the "crucible" from which the Gothic genre emerged in the eighteenth century. Since then, the Gothic has been a privileged mode for representing violence and extreme emotions and situations. Covering the period from the American Civil War to the War on Terror, this collection examines how the Gothic has provided writers an indispensable toolbox for narrating, critiquing, and representing real and fictional wars. The book also sheds light on the overlap and complicity between Gothic aesthetics and certain aspects of military experience, including the bodily violation and mental dissolution of combat, the dehumanization of "others," psychic numbing, masculinity in crisis, and the subjective experience of trauma and memory. Engaging with popular forms such as young adult literature, gaming, and comic books, as well as literature, film, and visual art, War Gothic provides an important and timely overview of war-themed Gothic art and narrative by respected experts in the field of Gothic Studies. This book makes important contributions to the fields of Gothic Literature, War Literature, Popular Culture, American Studies, and Film, Television & Media.
