I LOVED the spooky, creepy, awesome book, although at times it did make me feel funny . . .
My Peep and I got there early, so I explored . . .
I hoped it wasn't Ransom, so I headed to our lunch place, which coincidentally, I had eaten at before with another novelist . . .
Lest you think we are goofballs, I'll have you know we had a serious literary lunch. The kind where we wittily bantered about themes and plots and symbolism. I even interviewed Ransom. Here's our Q & A. Well, from what I can decipher. I took notes. Only, now I can't read them . . .
From what I can figure, here's a partial transcription . . .
Lisa: Ransom, what creeps you out.
Ransom: Child beauty pageant contestooons.
Lisa: Salty or sweet snacks?
Ransom: It's important to mix . . . ice cream myphone texture
Lisa: Book currently reading?
Ransom: New Brian Green.
Ransom: Cat Nico mews in jamma
So then, lunch continued, and it was much more coherent that my handwriting. In fact, I even videoed Ransom and his food.
But rather than just showing it to you, I asked Katie Dersnah Mitchell, librarian at Saline District Library in Michigan, and huge fan of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, "What do you think NY TIMES Bestselling Author Ransom Riggs eats for lunch?"
Katie gave it some serious thought and said, "Well, at first I figured poultry might be out the question, but it appears that geese were not suspected of being ymbrynes, so I am assuming the same of chickens. Yet, chicken of any sort seems much too tame for the mind that created Miss Peregrine and her cohorts. So, I am going to go with my husband's grandfather's favorite meal from his childhood in Wales--bangers and mash. However, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the bangers turned out to be blood sausage. ;)
(Katie used a word that those of you who have not read the book may be familiar with. Yes, "geese.")
Well, Katie, we have a surprise for you. Here's Ransom in a deliberately blurry, too dark, reddish glare of a video, sharing his lunch fare with all of us . . .
And if you want to eat your lunch (or dinner or snack or brunch or breakfast) and get deliciously scared, here's the Ransom-made director's cut of book trailer for his novel.
Now, I don't want to leave you terrified. So here's something cute you can think about before falling asleep tonight. Yes, that's my dog deciding between a book and a chew toy.
