Item description for Juliet Dove, Queen of Love (A Magic Shop Book) (UNABRIDGED) (Magic Shop Book) (Magic Shop Book) by Bruce Coville...
Juliet Dove is a girl who doesn't like to be noticed. But though she may be shy, she has a wickedly sharp wit. Whenever someone does take notice of her, she tears into the person with a savagery that's earned her the nickname Killer. Juliet ends up leaving Mr. Elives' magic shop with Helen of Troy's amulet--that is, a virtual man magnet. Juliet doesn't know what she's got, but the boys in her class do--they start to notice her. Soon every boy in town is swoony for her. Yet, much as she'd like to lose all the unwanted attention, she can't: The amulet won't come off! A sidesplittingly funny, heartbreaking whirlwind of a book about the high cost of loving, from the award-winning author of My Teacher Is an Alien and The Unicorn Chronicles.
Join the Full Cast Family as they romp their way through this dazzling tale of magic, myth, and love run wild. Seasoned with low comedy, high drama, and just a dash of poetry, Juliet Dove is story you're sure to fall in love with.

I think this book was great!! Oct 26, 2007
I think it was a pretty cool book but sometimes it grossed me out. I think anybody that liked adventure would like it. It was funny sometimes, and I liked the whole "Mr.Toe" thing. It made the book a lot funnier. Anyway like i said if you like adventure and can think of great pictures in your head, then I think you should read "Juliet Dove: Queen of Love".
A Kids Review Aug 24, 2007
Juliet Dove Queen of Love is about a girl, Juliet, who wonders into a mystical magic shop hidden in a part of her town. When she walks into the shop a lady at the counter showed Juliet an amulet. Juliet fell in love with the amulet because of it beautiful color and shape. She was told do not open this amulet for its color will crack. Juliet took the amulet home. I really liked this book because Juliet takes you on multiple adventures. Juliet meets all these Goddess who help her on her journey. These adventures are very descriptive and you feel like you are on the journey with her. I recommend this book to everyone. I really enjoyed it.
captivating to the last page! Jul 6, 2006
I was going to write that my young daughter adores this book, but I have to admit that I love it too! She's read it cover to cover many times over, and now selects her "favorite parts" for me to read aloud at bedtime. Coville has authored a whole slew of books, but this is the one I like best, with the exception of his Shakespeare adaptations. The book is full of enjoyable characters and intriguing plot twists.

You might think Juliet Dove Queen of Love is a lovey dovey book just for girls. It's actually a very interesting book. The author is Bruce Coville. The genre is fiction adventure. The main characters are Juliet Dove, Jerome, Roxanne,and a lot of different goddesses. Juliet Dove has an amulet that she can't get off. So all these boys start following her because they become in love. You have got to read it!!
In the beginning of the story Juliet Dove goes to a magic shop and a lady gives her this amulet. She doesn't want to leave it so she puts it on. In the middle of the story Juliet gets into all of these adventures trying to find out how to get the amulet off because it starts to tighten. Read this book to find out about the rest of her adventures.
The theme of this book is never talk to strangers. This book reminds me of someone I know in the middle school because boys are always chasing after her too. This book is great for girls in grade 2-5.

Funny, magical and gripping. The full cast presentation is lively and easy to follow. I enjoy the musical sound effects and multi voiced presentation. This series is getting better and better.
