Theodora Hendrix isn’t your average ten-year-old. Her best friend is a talking, top hat-wearing tarantula. She reads tarot cards (a gift from Georgie, a guitar-playing, kitten-cuddling, cotton-candy-eating zombie). Oh, and she lives in a haunted mansion full of monsters.
Theodora was just a baby when Georgie rescued her from a hobgoblin-infested graveyard and delivered her to the Monstrous League of Monsters (the MLM for short). The kind-hearted monsters vote to keep Theodora, risking Headquarters’ wrath if they’re ever discovered. They get away with it, too – until a series of anonymous letters coated in earwax threaten to expose them to Headquarters. As the monsters race to identify the letter-writer Theodora takes matters into her own hands, hatching a simple – no, clever – no, brilliant plan. If she fails, her beloved monsters will rot in the dank prisons of Transylvania. Forever. But if she succeeds, Theodora will lose her own freedom. Forever.
