Bruce Coville's The Monster's Ring did more than launch his career as a children's novelist, it also introduced readers to the world of Mr. Elives' Magic Shop, where boys hatch dragons, toads talk, skulls spout Shakespeare, and the heroes and heroines of Jeremy Thatcher, Dragon Hatcher, Jennifer Murdley's Toad, The Skull of Truth, and next year's Juliet Dove, Queen of Love find enchantment, adventure, and insight. Now available in twentieth anniversary editions, each of these modern classics has been given a new afterword by the author and stunning new jacket art by Tony DiTerlizzi.
Twist it once, you're horned and haired;
Twist it twice and fangs are bared;
Twist it thrice? No one has dared!
Russell is sure that the ring is just a silly magic trick, but he follows the instructions and twists the ring twice anyway--and becomes a monster!
