Not Coville's best - I liked Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher much better. But the Magic Shop books are a lot of fun.

Poor Russell Crannaker is being bullied. He's being bullied at school by Eddie, and he feels bullied by his parents when he can't seem to get a word in at home.

When Russell is running away from Eddie one afternoon, he stumbles upon a mysterious shop: Mr. Elives magic shop. It's here that he finds the monster's ring. The ring Russell has just purchased is more than a ring -it can transform Russell into a monster. Russell loves monsters, so he enjoys becoming one with the turn of his ring. Plus, Halloween is coming up and transforming himself into a monster would be the best costume ever.

But being a monster is dangerous, and when Russell dares to turn the ring and transform into a monster again and again, he gets much more than fur and horns!

I have been a big fan of Bruce Coville since I was a child, so I was excited to see this series re-released. This book is the first in the MAGIC SHOP books and is the perfect treat for a funny, spooky read. The story was short, but it had just the right amount of humor and mystery. At the end, the book included a note from the author in which he mentioned he wrote THE MONSTER'S RING so he would have a great Halloween read.

I agree - this is the perfect Halloween, or anytime, read!
