The folk of Monstros City have regained their protector-- Owlboy has returned!
But now that he's back, is he up to the challenges of keeping the peace in a city full of monsters? How about juggling that responsibility with all the burdens of being a young teen with homework, chores and a curfew?
If anyone can, it'll be Billy Hooten... Owlboy.From official release/information:
Book Description: One day, using the magical passage that will take him to Monstros City, Billy forgets to close the door to the crypt, and is followed by . . . Victoria. Oh, no. Victoria is Billy's neighbor, his constant shadow, and a huge pain in the butt. Worse, Monstros City seems to exaggerate the traits people have in Bradbury—and Victoria arrives in Monstros with something that Billy and Archebold name the Destructo Touch. Owlboy is supposed to protect Monstros City—but has he just introduced the agent of its destruction?
