The official spine-tingling prequel novel based on the hit horror video game, Bendy and the Ink Machine! Buddy Lewek has spent most of his life dreaming of escaping the slums of 1939 New York City. Counting pennies to survive, it doesn't seem likely that Buddy's dreams of becoming an artist will ever be realized, but that all changes when he meets Mr Joey Drew, the eccentric owner of an animation studio. Mr D takes Buddy under his wing as an apprentice, and Buddy couldn't be happier - maybe, as Mr D says, dreams do come true. But not everything at the studio is as picture-perfect as it seems. Something is going bump at night in the studio, something that leaves behind trails of thick, dark ink. Buddy is determined to find out just what is tormenting the studio after-hours, even if it means tracking the trail to Mr D himself. Don't miss this official pulse-pounding story from award-winning author Adrienne Kress, developed with theMeatly, Mike Mood and Bookpast!
