 When Russell's eccentric, storytelling grandpa moves in with the family, Russell loses his bedroom and has to take Grandpa to the carousel in the park every day. As if he doesn't have enough to deal with already. He's flunking fifth grade, bullied at school, and his dad's drinking has made him feel like a failure. Russell dreams of being a firefighter but fears he isn't courageous enough.

Then Russell rides a carousel horse with Grandpa. Thanks to a magic brass ring, he finds himself magically transported into the past, where he faces life-and-death challenges. Each ride is a new, risky adventure. If he's not careful, he could be trapped in one of his wild adventures forever!

This is the award-winning first story in the Brass Ring Series.
