9780152060848: The Skull of Truth: A Magic Shop Book

Mr. Elives’s magic shop is back, and this time it is on the other side of Tucker’s Swamp. And Tucker’s Swamp is where Charlie Eggleston heads to escape a beating-for lying. Charlie can’t seem to keep from lying, though sometimes his lies are for a good cause. When Charlie stumbles into Mr. Elives’s magic shop, his eyes light upon The Skull. Charlie steals The Skull and it puts him under some sort of spell-he can only tell the truth. Trouble is, now no one believes him. . . .

From AudioFile:

Bruce Coville is in top form (and that's very good indeed!) as he tells the story of Charlie Eggleston, whose problems in the real world are nothing compared to his problems with Mr. Elives' Magic Shop and the wisecracking Skull of Truth he picks up there. From the squeaky talking mice, Jerome and Roxanne, to the mysterious Hyacinth Priest, the cast of 17 voices is spot on, and Coville himself obviously enjoys Telling stories as much as he enjoys writing them. Lively and funny, Skull teaches while it entertains, and at the end the cavernous descent to return the Skull to its "true" home will emerge in your mind's eye as a light and sound extravaganza. M.C.
