• Jacob Portman, seize ans, écoute depuis son enfance les récits fabuleux de son grand-père. Ce dernier, un juif polonais, a passé une partie de sa vie sur une minuscule île du pays de Galles, où ses parents l'avaient envoyé pour le protéger de la menace nazie. Le jeune Abe Portman y a été recueilli par Miss Peregrine Faucon, la directrice d'un oprphelinat pour enfants "particuliers". Abe y côtoyait une ribambelle d'enfants doués de capacités surnaturelles, censées les protéger des "Monstres".Un soir, Jacob trouve son grand-père mortellement blessé par une créature qui s'enfuit sous ses yeux. Bouleversé, il part en quête de la vérité sur l'île si chère à son grand-père. En découvrant le pensionnat en ruines, il n'a plus aucun doute : les enfants particuliers ont réellement existé. Mais étaient-ils dangereux ? Pourquoi vivaient-ils ainsi reclus, cachés de tous ?

  • 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...

  • Jacob Portman est de retour chez lui, en Floride, là où tout a commencé. Et cette fois, son rêve est devenu réalité : Miss Peregrine et les enfants particuliers sont à ses côtés. Ces derniers découvrent, fascinés, le monde moderne. Afin de faciliter leur intégration, Jacob est chargé de leur donner des cours de normalité. Au programme : plage, baignade, et leçons particulières...
    Mais la découverte d'un mystérieux bunker dans la maison de son grand-père va tout changer. Persuadé qu'Abe lui a laissé des indices pour sauver des enfants particuliers isolés, Jacob entraîne ses amis sur les routes. C'est le début d'un jeu de piste dangereux, à travers un long périple dans l'Amérique d'aujourd'hui, territoire étrange, aux espaces parallèles peuplés de créatures d'un autre temps.

  • Dans le Londres d'aujourd'hui, Jacob Portman et Emma Bloom se lancent à la recherche de leurs amis enlevés par les Estres. Ils retrouvent leur trace grâce au flair aiguisé d'Addison, l'illustre chien particulier doué de parole. Ils rejoignent ainsi l'Arpent du Diable, une boucle temporelle à la réputation effroyable où séjournent les particuliers les moins recommandables...

  • Jacob et Noor viennent d'échapper au clan de Léo, mais un nouveau danger se profile. Avant de mourir, H a parlé d'une prophétie qui pourrait anéantir le monde des particuliers.

    Quand voleront les hommes, à l'instar des oiseaux, Quand les monstres tapis, sortiront au grand air.

    Noor serait au coeur de cette guerre souterraine. Et seule une mystérieuse V pourrait assurer sa protection.
    C'est le début d'une course-poursuite avec pour seuls indices, une carte déchirée et des instructions énigmatiques.
    Mais le temps est compté et les avertissements se font de plus en plus pressants.
    Et la menace devient chaque jour plus réelle :

    Quand le chaos total régnera sur la Terre, Alors commencera une ère de discorde.
    />
    Jacob et les enfants particuliers vont devoir s'armer de courage afin d'empêcher le monde de sombrer.
