THE MONSTER'S RING "Twist it once, you're horned and haired Twist it twice, and fangs are bared Twist it thrice--no one has dared!" Pursued by the bullying Eddie, timid Russell Crannaker stumbles into Mr. Elives' magic shop, where he buys a mysterious ring that allows him to become a monster. Soon Russell finds himself growing bolder as he begins to express his inner monster. But has he become too bold? What, exactly, is the ring doing to him? And what price will he have to pay if he fails to follow the directions? This full cast recording, narrated by Bruce Coville himself, perfectly captures the frightfully funny, deliciously scary story that launched the highly acclaimed Magic Shop series. Bruce Coville has published over 80 books for young readers, including the bestselling MY TEACHER IS AN ALIEN series and the wildly popular UNICORN CHRONICLES. Much in demand as a speaker and storyteller, Bruce lives in Syracuse, New York, with his wife, illustrator Katherine Coville.
