Owlboy: The Girl with the Destructo Touch

On one particularly mind-numbing day, when Billy has extra homework, a spelling test to study for, chores around the house, and, of course, villainy to squash in the city of monsters . . . Billy chooses to squash some villainy! 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, Billy's hometown -- and Victoria arrives in Monstros with something that Billy and his sidekick Archebold name the Destructo Touch. Owlboy is supposed to protect Monstros City -- but has he just introduced the agent of its destruction?
