The Goonies meets The Last Kids on Earth in Monster Club—an illustrated middle grade two-book adventure series about a boy who discovers magic ink that brings his monster drawings to life, written by Academy Award nominee Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel.

Like almost everything in twelve-year-old Eric “Doodles” King’s life, King’s Wonderland—the amusement park his great-great-grandfather founded—was seriously damaged when a hurricane hit Coney Island. Hungry property developers are circling the wreck of the once-awesome Wonderland like vultures, and Doodles’s family is falling apart over the threat of losing everything.If it weren’t for Monster Club—an epic role-playing game that Doodles and his friends developed together—Doodles's life would be terrible. Drawing his favorite monster, Brickman, battling with his best friends’ creations is the only thing that still gets Doodles excited. So when his friends start to get more interested in other things, Doodles just can’t deal. He starts acting out and getting into trouble at school and at home. But then everything changes when Doodles finds a long-lost vial of magic ink that somehow brings his monster to life. Suddenly, Monster Club isn’t just about playing games. Now that Brickman, Bellybeast, DecaSpyder, and RoboKillz can move, talk, and fight on their own, Doodles thinks he’s found the key to saving King’s Wonderland—and maybe even his parents’ marriage too.Monster Club is a thrilling illustrated adventure series about growing up and facing down your monsters by the award-winning screenwriter, director, and debut author Darren Aronofsky and Ari Handel.
