School Library Journal - 06/01/2012 Gr 4–6—Twins Jack and Jaide have magical gifts that they will someday put to use to keep The Evil from creeping into the world. In this installment in the series, they attempt to learn how to develop and govern their talents. Many mishaps occur along the way, which is the reason the siblings are called "troubletwisters." Against their grandmother's wishes, they continue to investigate whether The Evil is once again walking around their small town. Having been caught by it in the last book, Jack is particularly sensitive and fears being consumed by it. The best part of the book is the description of how The Evil manifests itself. Swarms of insects and possessed humans with white eyeballs add to the fear factor. There is more of the same in The Monster, with moths that blanket themselves over the main characters and larger-than-life worms tormenting the town. Readers who like Brandon Mull's "Fablehaven" tales (Shadow Mountain), Suzanne Collins's "Gregor the Overlander" series (Scholastic), and Joseph Delaney's "Last Apprentice" books (HarperCollins) will enjoy this series.—Kathleen Meulen Ellison, Sakai Intermediate School, Bainbridge Island, WA - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
