Monsters! Stomping out of the sea, attacking the city! It's super cool! At least until it actually starts happening in real life, not just in Zoe's favorite movies.
A fun story of how tough it can be to find your true friends, especially if one of them lives under the ocean and is a monster.
I loved Zoe and her passion for robot-building, and the shenanigans of her triplet siblings really made me laugh! A great new graphic novel adventure. — Leah Moore
Zoe is a super-smart young girl who is well beyond her classmates. One day her parents decide to send her to a special school. The same day Zoe makes a new friend. But one overheard conversation leads to Zoe realizing that she does not need friends. After all, they will only let you down. Hurt you. And robots are cooler anyways. But a few years later, when a ring Zoe finds laying around probably grants her a wish, we get neck deep into the world of movie monsters (or Kaiju) that Zoe loves! But one monster that Zoe finds is more than meets the eye. He might want to eat every building in sight, but he also wants to be Zoe’s friend. With a sentient robot she made and her new friend Chomp, Zoe realizes that sometimes you must do the hard stuff: like ask for help. — Jeanette
In this funny, action-packed graphic novel adventure, a science-obsessed girl finds herself in the middle of one of her favorite monster movies. Can she invent her way out of disaster while also saving the monster who has become her friend?
Zoe's favorite thing to do—besides invent and build robots—is watch classic monster movies. She has never been comfortable with kids her own age, and so she pretends she doesn't need friends while inside she's longing for connection. And then one day, Zoe finds a mysterious ring on her way home from school. She puts it on, gives it a twist, and—FRZAAKK! There's a massive burst of light! The next morning, a familiar monster appears at Zoe's window. He's from one of her favorite kaiju movies, and he likes Zoe—he wants to be her friend. Has her secret wish been fulfilled? But it turns out that Zoe's ring has brought more than just this friendly monster to life. More monsters have arrived, and they are hungry! Now she'll need to reach out to other people to help her save her town from destruction. Good thing she's a robotics genius!
