First Impressions: Reviews of A Map of Days


A Map of Days, the next entry in Ransom Riggs’ bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series, is now available in National Book Store!

Jacob Portman is back where his story began, in Florida, together with Miss Peregrine, Emma, and their peculiar friends who are doing their best to blend in. Then they discover a subterranean bunker that belonged to Jacob’s grandfather, Abe, and clues to Abe’s double-life as a peculiar operative start to emerge.

Jacob begins to learn about the legacy he has inherited — truths that were part of him long before he walked into Miss Peregrine’s time loop — and he and his friends are thrust into the untamed landscape of American peculiardom. Their story is again illustrated throughout by haunting vintage photographs, but with a striking addition for this all-new, multi-era American adventure — full color.

But what do critics and bookworms think of this new entry in the series? Let’s check out what they have to say!


When I started this book my main thought was “this is way to big”. After finishing it all I can think about is how I want more. This book definitely has a different feel than the previous trilogy, but in all the best ways. It is a great continuation of the story. – Jessica, 4 out of 5 stars

I couldn’t put it down and I just found myself so engaged with the story, that I dreamt about the characters, it was oddly wonderful and of course, all sorts of peculiar! I was actually amazed by this fourth installment, it felt like the best yet! – Brooklyn Tayla, 5 out of 5 stars

Kirkus Reviews

The by-now-tangled skein of rivalries, romantic troubles, and family issues continues to ravel amid bursts of savage violence and low comedy… A fresh set of found snapshots serves, as before, to add an eldritch atmosphere to each set of incidents.
