miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children
A Novel

“The house was strewn with discarded things, most of which looked like they hadn’t been touched in years. Brittle newspapers gathered in drifts. Scattered toys, evidence of children long gone, were skinned with dust. Creeping mold had turned window-adjacent walls black and furry.”

By Ransom Riggs A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. And a strange collection of very curious photographs. It all waits to be discovered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, an unforgettable novel that mixes fiction and photography in a thrilling reading experience. As our story opens, a horrific family tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. As Jacob explores its abandoned bedrooms and hallways, it becomes clear that the children who once lived here—one of whom was his own grandfather—were more than just peculiar. They may have been dangerous. They may have been quarantined on a desolate island for good reason. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive. A spine-tingling fantasy illustrated with haunting vintage photography, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children will delight adults, teens, and anyone who relishes an adventure in the shadows.
RAnsOm Riggs lives in Los Angeles.

Pride and Prejudice and zombies: dreadfully Ever After

The thrilling conclusion to the Pride and Prejudice and Zombies trilogy!

By steve Hockensmith Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and its prequel, Dawn of the Dreadfuls, were both New York Times best sellers, with a combined 1.3 million copies in print. Now the PPZ trilogy comes to a thrilling conclusion with Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dreadfully Ever After. The story opens with our newly married protagonists, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, defending their village from an army of flesh-eating “unmentionables.” But the honeymoon has barely begun when poor Mr. Darcy is nipped by a rampaging dreadful. Elizabeth knows the proper course of action is to promptly behead her husband (and then burn the corpse, just to be safe). But when she learns of a miracle antidote under development in London, she realizes there may be one last chance to save her true love—and for everyone to live happily ever after.
sTEvE HOCkEnsmiTH is the author of the New York Times best seller Pride and Prejudice and Zombies:

The meowmorphosis

“One morning, as Gregor Samsa was waking up from anxious dreams, he discovered that he had been changed into an adorable kitten.”

By Franz kafka and Coleridge Cook The phenomenal success of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies inspired a massively popular literary-remix movement. Now Quirk Classics once again charts bold new territory, turning the monster-mash-up formula inside out to infuse Franz Kafka’s horrific masterpiece, “The Metamorphosis,” with the fuzziest, snuggliest, most adorable creatures possible: kittens! Gregor Samsa is a humble young man who supports his unemployed parents and teenage sister by working as a traveling fabric salesman. But his life goes strangely wrong in the very first sentence of The Meowmorphosis, when he wakes up late for work and discovers that he has inexplicably become an adorable kitten. His family must admit that, yes, their son is now OMG so cute—but what good is cute when there are bills to pay? How can Gregor be so selfish as to devote his attention to a ball of yarn? And how dare he jump out the bedroom window to wander through Kafka’s literary landscape? Never before has a cat’s tale been so poignant, strange, and horrifyingly funny.
FRAnz kAFkA , author of The Trial, is one of the most influential fiction writers of the early 20th century.

The Pregnancy Test
150 Important, Embarrassing, and Slightly Neurotic Questions

Dozens of questions from moms-to-be:
• • • • Can I ride a rollercoaster in my first trimester? Can I get pregnant while I’m already pregnant? If my baby only weighs 1 lb. why have I gained 15? Is it safe to pump my own gas?

With answers!

By melissa Heckscher, with Emily sikking, m.d.

Authors Melissa Heckscher and Dr. Emily Sikking test readers’ knowledge of everything from fetal development to labor and delivery—and along the way, you’ll learn why pregnant women should stay off roller coasters and go easy on caffeine. The perfect gift for new moms (and a terrific refresher course for seasoned veterans), The Pregnancy Test answers everything you’ve ever wondered while expecting.

By Anthony T. deBenedet, m.d., and Lawrence j. Cohen, Ph.d. All over the United States, physical play—what some might call “roughhousing”—is being marginalized. Gym classes are getting shorter.

The Art of Roughhousing teaches parents how rough-and-tumble play can nurture close connections, solve behavior problems, boost confidence, and more. Drawing from gymnastics, martial arts, ballet, traditional sports, and even animal behavior, the authors present fifty illustrated activities for children and parents to enjoy together – everything from the “Sumo Deadlift” to the “Rogue Dumbo.” Arriving just in time for Father’s Day, The Art of Roughhousing is the perfect gift for rowdy dads everywhere.

yo momma so Extraordinary
A Treasury of Yo Momma Compliments

But here at Quirk, we reject these cruel and hurtful insults. We want to show yo momma the love and respect she deserves. And so we’ve created Yo Momma So Extraordinary—the first-ever book of Yo Momma compliments. This is how we roll:
❤❤ Yo momma so considerate, she puts sheets on the couch when I stay over so it looks like I slept on it. ❤❤ Yo momma so hygienic, she sings the whole birthday song while she washes her hands to ensure

that they are clean. ❤❤ Yo momma has so many cats, it’s like DAAAAAMN! Which one should I pet first? ❤❤ Yo momma so old, I sometimes question if what we have together is right. Illustrated with dozens of ridiculously funny photographs of Mommas (and the men who love them), this odd little book will make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift for the quirky momma in yo life.
zACHARy REEsE and ETHAn mcCREAdiE are computer nerds living in Philadelphia. They enjoy
