Things We Saw Today: Stranger Things Prequel Book Coming, to Focus on Eleven’s Mother

Netflix’s Stranger Things is expanding onto the book world. According to Deadline, the show has a partnership with Penguin Books, which will lead to the production. So far, there are two titles coming out by 2019, a behind-the-scenes companion book and a hardcover young readers title.

The companion book is titled Stranger Things: World Turned Upside Down: The Official Behind-The-Scenes Companion and is said to offer “advice, wisdom, and warnings from the Stranger Things world.”

The prequel novel, which will be written by author Gwenda Bond, will be about Eleven’s mother, Terry Ives, and the MKUltra program. Bond was also the author of the fantastic Lois Lane young adult books.

Additional titles for both age ranges will arrive later in 2019.
