The cover has yet to be revealed, but if it’s anything like the previous covers, it’s sure to be interesting. That said, we at least know the title: The Conference of Birds.
Goodreads also has a little bit about the plot:
“Do you trust me?”
An instant bestseller, A Map of Days launched readers into the previously unexplored world of American peculiars, one bursting with new questions, new allies, and new adversaries.
Now, with enemies behind him and the unknown ahead, Jacob Portman’s story continues as he takes a brave leap forward into The Conference of the Birds, the next installment of the beloved, bestselling Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series.
The books, as well as Riggs, rose to fame with the release of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children in 2011. Riggs’ story is notable for its use of old-time, black and white photos that showcase strange individuals and items. The books got a movie treatment in 2016 from Tim Burton (‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’). The fourth Miss Peregrine’s book, A Map of Days, was released in October 2018.
Very little is known about the fifth book, but Bookstacked will keep you updated with more info as it comes.
Can you guys wait until 2020 for the next book?
