The Lovereading4Kids comment

There’s a new fantastical adventure for twins Jack and Jaide, both of whom have special troubletwister powers. Having seen off the Evil once, they now look set for another round of adventures as a new threat is posed when the Monster of Portland appears. A fast paced adventure in which the unbelievable happens!


Troubletwisters: The Monster by Garth Nix, Sean Williams

Jack and Jaide Shield are determined to discover more about what it means to be a troubletwister, but their special powers remain untamed! Even troubletwisters have to go to school, but the twins remain vigilant for any sign of the Evil returning to Portland. The ancient instruments in the antiques store all register traces of Evil activity, even though nothing tangible can be found. Could it be something to do with the legendary Monster of Portland, which has supposedly been spotted roaming the streets at night?
