Beyond the Knock Knock door by Scott Monk

Random House, 2009. ISBN 9781741664072.
(Primary) This is a modern fantasy, fast moving with an amazing list of characters and fearsome animals. The Bowman triplets are plagued by the terrifying Thornleigh sisters. Michael gives a homeless man his fare and the intrigue begins. The triplets answer a riddle in a door and find themselves embroiled in a world of exotic people who challenge them in their beliefs and judgement. It's action packed and races from one hair raising situation to the next with hardly a breath in between. The text is well spaced and clear, an encouragement to boys to read. Modern dialogue will appeal to readers.
