Stranger Things: Heroes And Monsters
Penguin Random House has licensed the rights for a Stranger Things CYOA from Chooseco, the publisher of the Choose Your Own Adventure® (CYOA) gamebooks, the fourth bestselling children’s book series of all time.
Rana Tahir, a Portland-based poet and CYOA author, wrote “Stranger Things: Heroes and Monsters based on the fourth season of the Netflix show “.” On April 18, 2023, Random House Children’s Books (RHCB), a Penguin Random House division, will publish it.
With 280 pages and more than 25 endings, “Heroes and Monsters” will be the longest CYOA book to date in their Classic series. It is written in the second person, as are all of the books by CYOA. You, the reader, are the protagonist. You are given a series of choices to make as you read the book.
Rana Tahir adapted the fourth season’s plot for middle-grade readers without including the show’s more mature material. In “Heroes and Monsters,” you join Eleven, Dustin, Max, Lucas, and the rest of the Hawkins crew in a race to save their friends from unimaginable danger. Along the way, you encounter Pennhurst Asylum, the spooky old Creel house, and maybe even the Upside Down.
