by | Read by Bruce Coville and a Full Cast

Children Ages 8+ • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1982

This full-cast production of the first book in Bruce Coville's Magic Shop series coincides with the re-release of these books in new hardcover editions. As narrator, Coville's voice is infused with mystery and fun as he tells the story of Russell Crannaker, a shy boy plagued by the class bully until the day he stumbles on Mr. Elives's magic shop and buys the monster's ring, a ring that transforms him physically and, with both good and bad results, mentally. The cast of characters play their parts well, particularly main character Russell, as he transforms from fearful and nervous to more confident and sure, and his nemesis, Eddie, as he takes the opposite path. Fast paced and full of adventure, this production is sure to please. A.F. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 03]
