The Ghost in the Third Row

Author: Bruce Coville Narrator: Sophie Greene Release Date: 01/03/2022

For sixth-grader Nina Tanleven, trying out for a part in a play is pretty scary. But nothing can compare to seeing a ghost, a woman in white, sitting in the audience! Nina senses that she has nothing to fear from this apparition, but she is intrigued. Nina learns that fifty years ago, a beautiful actress was murdered--on this very stage! According to legend, she has haunted the theater ever since.... Strange things begin to happen scripts are ripped up, sets are knocked down, a costume is torn to pieces--and everyone thinks that the ghost wants to stop the show from going on. Everyone, that is, except for Nina and her best friend, Chris, who decide to do some ghost hunting of their own. But only the Woman in White can lead them to the answer!

Sixth-Grade Alien: I Shrank My Teacher

Sixth-Grade Alien: I Shrank My Teacher

Author: Bruce Coville Narrator: William Dufris Release Date: 01/03/2021

Pleskit Meenom, the first alien to go to school on Earth, is starting to fit in with his new class. It's not easy, given how slippery the language is. (Just how many meanings does the word "cool" have, anyway?) But the biggest problem is Jordan Lynch, the class bully who just can't resist picking on the new kid. Finally Pleskit and his new best friend, Tim Tompkins, decide to take action. But taking action when you have alien technology at your disposal can mean taking things just a little too far . . . and we do mean little! This hilarious mix of comedy, alien adventure, and social satire is enhanced by a brilliant reading from the late, great William Dufris (the original American voice of Bob the Builder), which School Library Journal said, "makes the recording a hoot!"

William Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

William Shakespeare's The Winter's Tale

Author: Bruce Coville Narrator: A. C. Fellner, A.C. Fellner Release Date: 01/03/2019

'There is a disease that can twist men's hearts and make them mad, and the name of that disease is jealousy.' So begins this engaging retelling of one of William Shakespeare's last plays-a fascinating and unique combination of intensity and whimsy. When King Leontes unfairly accuses his wife of infidelity, he sets off a terrible chain of events. But this is not one of Shakespeare's tragedies. It's a romance, and one with a healthy dose of fancy and surprise. A story of redemption and the strength of friendship and true love, The Winter's Tale is perhaps also Bruce Coville's most eloquent retelling yet.

Author: Bruce Coville Narrator: , Barbara Rosenblat, Full Cast, Kivlighan De Montebello Release Date: 01/09/2017

If you liked the movies Elf and Shrek, you'll love THE ENCHANTED FILES-a magical, hilarious comedy series about fantastical creatures in the modern world by the bestselling author of My Teacher Is an Alien: Bruce Coville! Any troll worth their farts knows that a proper troll should: 1. Avoid thinking or feeling! (Feelings? Blech!) 2. Love burping and farting! (But who doesn't?) 3. And, most important, despise humans! But Ned is not just any troll. Even though Ned is nearly seven feet tall, with a nose the size of a pickle, Ned has a heart full of LOVE! A heart that swoons over poetry and craves true friendship! And when it comes to humans . . . it's complicated. So complicated that long ago, Ned fled the Enchanted Realm for the one place no one would notice a troll hiding in plain sight: NEW YORK CITY. But one human boy-Cody-has noticed. And Cody's snooping leads to a wild and hilarious adventure that takes readers from the tunnels underneath Grand Central all the way to the Enchanted Realm (and back again!). "Bruce Coville is a wizard at telling stories." -Christopher Paolini, New York Times bestselling author of Eragon
