Jacob's grandfather had always told him stories of peculiar children and monsters. One day he died and he saw a monster in the woods like his grandfather described but his friend didn't.
Go find Miss Peregrine!
Jacob began to have nightmares after his grandfathers death. They included the monster that he saw that night in the woods. He then decided to go find out his grandfathers mysteries.
Jacob went to the island his grandfather had always talked about with his father. They stayed in a tiny hotel above a bar. Every day Jacob would go to the house his grandfather said to go to and explore it.
One day he appeared in the house but this time it wasn't all destroyed. There were people living there. The people living there were the peculiar children in his grandfather's story! Jacob had entered a loop that was controlled by Miss Peregine. A loop is the same day repeated over and over to allow the children to stay alive.
After Jacob had entered the time loop, he was captured by one the percular kids his grandfather told him story's about. She brought him to Miss Peregrine thinking he was a wight. Miss Peregrine told him about the monsters he saw and the dangers of them! So one night he and some of his peculiar friends decided to go and kill the monsters.
Your grandfather used to live here with us! But, he left to go fight!
Jacob and Emma split up from the group to go kill the monster to protect there friends. But Jacob distracted the monster and killed it. Then they went to save Miss Peregrine and started a new loop on a boat.
