Recently, I wrote a children’s book called The Goonies Little Golden Book, which will be published by Penguin Random House on July 4th, 2023.
As you may have discerned from the title, this book is an adaptation of the iconic 1985 film Goonies, written as a Little Golden Book for very young readers.
And much like The E.T. Little Golden Book and The Back to the Future Little Golden Book (both of which I also wrote), The Goonies LGB is not just a Little Golden Book, but a Funko Pop Little Golden Book! That means that everyone in the book is drawn in the iconic, super-adorable Funko Pop style.
Here’s the official publisher description of The Goonies Little Golden Book:
“Hey, you guys!” The Goonies Little Golden Book is based on the classic film that features those adventure-seeking Goonies as lovable Funko POP! figures! Follow Mikey and the other Goonies as they race to find the pirate treasure that will help them save their beloved Goon Docks in this delightful retelling of the beloved classic movie The Goonies. Illustrated in the quirky and loveable Funko POP! art style, this collectable Little Golden Book will delight kids ages 2 to 5—and their parents—with its light-hearted reimagining of one of the funniest films of all time!
I had a fantastic time writing this book, and I can’t wait until it comes out!
