Although Jacob grew up hearing stories of his grandfather’s childhood on a mysterious island and later fighting monsters as an adult, he later doubted the truth of these tall tales. When his grandfather is murdered, by what looks to be a beast with snakes for a tongue, he decides to visit his grandfather’s home to discover the truth. There he finds the home for peculiar children and witnesses their peculiar talents, while being pursued by an evil enemy. Riggs sprinkles vintage photographs throughout to provide a framework for this clever story.
