Billy Hooten would rather hide out in his room, reading comic books (especially Owlboy), than deal with bullies. Then he dons the Owlboy costume and goes from supergeek to superhero! He travels to Monstros City, an underground town crawling with monsters both good and bad, and learns what responsibilities (and cool gadgets) come with being the new Owlboy.

In the third Owlboy adventure, Billy must protect and defend the residents of Monstros City from a large Godzilla-like monkey-fish-beast that's prowling around. Meanwhile, back in his regular life aboveground, he has to hang out with his elderly great-aunt. Old people scare him more than giant gorillas - that is, until he makes a new old friend and realizes that age is nothing but a number.

These books are perfect for the elementary school crowd: they aren't too scary, they are plenty silly, and they have lots of crazy creatures. Kids will giggle at Thomas E. Sniegoski's writing, dig Eric Powell's comic-like illustrations, and have fun on Billy's adventures. I highly recommend the Owlboy books to kids and even adults, especially those who like superheroes, comic books, and funny stories.
