Item description for The Monster's Ring (Magic Shop) by Bruce Coville...
Monsters, aliens, ghosts, giant frogs, and a tragic angel are just some of the ingredients of this madcap adventure that is quite possibly Bruce Coville's strangest novel yet. Bruce himself appears on this recording as Gaspar Morley, head of a strange family of monsters that draw Anthony (our narrator) and his little sister Sarah into a galaxy-spanning adventure with the very souls of Earth's dead at stake.

The Ring is There, If You Dare! Jul 26, 2008
The Monster Ring By Bruce Coville
What boy wouldn't want to be a monster, and teach a bully a lesson?
Russell is being teased and tormented daily by Eddie. While running away from the bully, he steps into a magic shop. Russell is eying a ring with the picture of a monster. The shop owner asks, "What do you need?" Russell isn't sure what the shop owner means, but when Russell asks how much the ring will cost, the shop owner asks, "How much do you have?"
Russell buys the ring with his pocket change. He is told to pay careful attention to the directions.
When Russell twists the ring and chants the verse on the directions, he begins to change. Russell sprouts hair and horns. "Twist it once, you're horned and haired. Twist it twice, and fangs are bared. Twist it thrice--no one has dared."
The monster ring has changed Russell so much, even his voice has changed. At last he can face the bully, without being afraid. Will Russell remember that all magic has rules, or will it be too late for him to turn the magic back?

The Monsters Ring Apr 12, 2007
The Monsters Ring by Bruce Coville is a great book and I would recommend it but only for people 15 and younger. The story starts on a street. Russle is talking to Eddie on his way out of school talking to him and is saying that he is going to go to the magic shop. Russle is walking and he see's a magic shop. He walks in and is looking around and sees a ring. He picks it up and goes and shows it to his friend. Then they go to school. After school he drops the ring and it goes down the sewer.
Russel is really protective about the ring he gets in the magic shop. He is really protective of the ring for an example he does not let any body else touch it but himself. He has like a monster inside him because he is really nice but when he is mad he hurts someone. He hurt Eddie his best friend because he bumped in to him and his ring fell down the sewer. He is really selfish because he does not let any body else touch his ring He has brown hair and brown eyes.
You should read this book because it is certainty a great book?
A great book, and not just for Halloween Apr 4, 2007
My nine-year-old son's teacher read this book to his class last Halloween, and he didn't stop asking for it. We finally got it this spring, and he's loving every moment again and again. It's about a boy and a monster, but it's not too scary for my four-year-old. And, it does wrap up with a happy ending and lesson about bullying.
A smooth read!!! Mar 19, 2006
