The Monster’s Ring – Bruce Coville, Katherine Coville (illustrator)

★★★

To change yourself into a hideous monsters, place the ring on the ring finger of your right hand…Use with caution, and never on the night of a full moon.

Russell Crannaker is constantly being babied by his mom and bullied by the kids at school.

He’s SO SICK of it!

He wishes – for once – that he’d be big enough and scary enough so that no one tries to boss him around.

One day, he stumbles upon a mysterious magic shop and walks away with a ring – one that promises magical powers.

He’s dubious but soon realize that the ring is the real deal. It can transform him into a monster!

And it’s awesome…until it isn’t anymore. Sometimes, scary things should just be left alone.

This is a promising start to a new series.

I like the concept of the monster-ring – but I wish it was played out a bit more. It would have been awesome to see this story just absolutely ran with!

But as it stands, this is a pretty good Halloween-y book.

I really am enjoying this series and cannot wait for it to continue.
