    Reeling from a terrible family tragedy, 16-year-old Jacob Portman sets out in search of his beloved grandfather’s fabled childhood home in Wales. There, he hopes to solve the mystery of his grandfather's dying words: "Find the bird in the loop on the other side of the old man's grave on September 3, 1940, and tell them what happened." While looking for clues, Jacob finds the home, now abandoned and in ruins. The locals say it's haunted by the ghosts of the children who once lived there—but Jacob discovers that they still live there, in the flesh!

    Jacob makes the acquaintance of the most unusual children he's ever met, including a girl who can conjure fire and a boy with bees in his stomach. These remarkable children and more are the wards of the bird-like headmistress, Miss Peregrine. Throughout the series, Jacob and his peculiar friends will fight men and monsters, from far in the past to present-day London, to keep humanity safe.

    从小,雅各的爷爷为他说的床边故事十分与众不同,他会一遍又一遍地说着自己童年时的诡异故事:在英国威尔斯的孤儿院裡,院长是会变成大鸟的隼夫人,院童中有不用绳子绑住就会飘到空中的小女孩,后脑杓有第二张嘴的人,当然,还有一个透明的男孩。

    小时候的雅各对爷爷的故事深信不疑,但随着时间过去,长大的他认为那只是些重複曝光的旧照片,爷爷只是个想像力丰富的老人,毕竟,这世上怎麽会有飘在空中的小女孩呢?

    但在那一天,他看到了。

    雅各亲眼看到爷爷故事中的「怪物」。

    那一天,怪物在雅各面前袭击爷爷、夺走他的生命。雅各开始明白,爷爷说的不是故事,是他真实经历的一切。他也记得,在爷爷断气之前,抓着他的领子对他说:「去找大鸟、去圈套裡、去告诉他们发生了什麽事……」于是,他决定完成爷爷的遗愿,前往威尔斯的怪奇孤儿院、寻找隼夫人。不管这是否代表怪物将会盯上他,把他当作下一个目标……

    照片是祕密的祕密,

    它告诉你的越多,你知道的越少。
