Synopses & Reviews
If Howard Morton and Freddie the Frog Killer were tryingto hold you down so that Mary Lou Hutton could kiss you, you might run as fast as Jeremy Thatcher did the day he stumbled into Mr. Elives' Magic Shop.
And if you stumbled into that strange shop, you, too, might be asked to make a choice. What would you buy? The Chinese rings? The Skull of Truth? Or the dragon's egg?

About the Author
Bruce Coville was born in Syracuse. He first became interested in writing when he was in the sixth grade, and decided to write children's books when he read Winnie the Pooh for the first time at the age of nineteen. (He might have read the book sooner, but he couldn't understand it until then.) Mr. Coville lives in New York City with a large, lazy cat named Spike. He has written more than three dozen books for children, including the best-selling My Teacher Is and Alien series.
