Jordan Kopy is thrilled to have signed a 3 book deal with Walker Books for her debut middle grade series, THEODORA HENDRIX AND THE MONSTROUS LEAGUE OF MONSTERS. For the full article, please click the link below.
The story follows the adventures of 10-year-old Theodora Hendrix. Abandoned in a hobgoblin-infested graveyard as a baby, Theodora is rescued by a guitar-playing, candy-floss-eating zombie named Georgie and his best friend Bandit, a masked vampire cat. They spirit her away to the haunted mansion in which the members of the Monstrous League of Monsters (the MLM for short) reside. The monsters adopt Theodora, breaking Headquarters’ Number 1 Rule: Keep Monsters Hidden From Humans. They get away with it, too – until a series of anonymous letters coated in earwax threaten to expose their secret. If Theodora doesn’t act fast, she may lose her family – forever.
Emma Lidbury of Walker said: “This sharp, witty debut features a remarkably well-adjusted 10-year-old growing up in a remarkably unusual family. Jordan has created an engaging, likeable heroine in Theodora and devised a clever story arc that will have readers rooting for her all the way. And Jordan’s imagination is limitless – I suspect we will see many, many more monsters before the series is out!”
Jordan Kopy added: “I am ecstatic to be partnering with Walker Books for my debut novel, Theodora Hendrix and the Monstrous League of Monsters. As a long-time reader of children’s fiction, I can think of no better home for Theodora Hendrix, and have been blown away by the team’s enthusiasm and vision not only for this novel, but for the entire series.”
