    The Legend of Spud Murphy is about a young boy, Will, and his four brothers Will and his brother Martin, being the elder brothers, are blamed for the mischief and noise within the house during a long boring summer holiday Their parents think it best to get them out of the house and decide upon an educational based pursuit for the remainder of the holidays, deciding that they should attend the library each day As with all young imaginations, the boys know that the library is inhabited by the terr [...]

    When Will and Marty, the two oldest boys of five, are sent off to the library it seems their worst fears are realised when they first encounter the dreaded librarian Mrs Murphy seems to be the epitome of the crusty, scary, aloof boss of the books , and, initially at least, it appears that everything is true, she really hates children.Both Marty and Will knew of the spud gun, hence Mrs Murphy s nick name Spud Murphy , and were already convinced of its existence even before they d met the head lib [...]

    Voi ett , t m oli parempi kuin muistinkaan Aivan mahtava Toivoisin vaan, ett meid nkin kirjastossa olisi tuon ik isille 8 10 v j nnitt vi lukukirjoja taistelevista j ttil isist sun muista perinteisist aiheista Tuntuu, ett tuollaiset tarinat on enimm kseen piilotettu paksuihin satukirjoihin ja kansanrunoushyllyyn _ Kuka kirjoittaisi kansantarinoista kuvitettuja, helppolukuisia lukukirjoja

    I adore Eoin Colfer, Artemis is one of my favorite characters as of late This is a much easier read and appropriate for young readers than Artemis, yet Colfer s wit is still spot on This is a great young reader book My 2nd graders LOVED it At least three of my kids borrowed this book or got their parents to buy it after we read it, they wanted to read it over and over.

    A quick read This book was recommended to me by a wonderful new fifth grade teacher in our school She shares it with her class to break the ice at the beginning of the year I had no idea it was about a librarian when I began It is a clever story with fun characters and a great message about books Fits my 2016 reading challenge 10 a book somebody loaned me 11 a book about a librarian

    My first Eoin Colfer book, recommended to me by my little library friend Very funny book about Libraries and Librarians Even better when the recommender whispers to you and she stamped his arm with a I Love Barbies stamp

    Hilarious Such a fun book there were moments when I could not stop laughing, I d read parts to my partner and we d both be in stitches Plus, it s a book about a cranky librarian What could be enjoyable

    Funny and consequently great for young and, in particular, reluctant readers Without being too obvious it has a couple of good lessons reading is fun and people are not always what they seem This is one that I would read with my children.

    Margot(The Bookworm Experiment)
    Rating 3.5 stars Eoin Colfer is one of my fave authors, couldn t help myself.Great book for kids

    Read this book with grandson Great, fun book Kids would love it

    As an elementary school librarian how could I not love a book about a scary librarian Very fun tale of two brothers who get sent to the library to for an educational summer activity Spud Murphy is a no nonsense librarian rud to have a spud gun hence the name Read to 2nd and 3rd graders who then once laughed out loud at the exploits.

    Aivan mahtava kirja T m on todella hyvin kirjoitettu Se on hauska ja mielenkiintoinen Pottu M kinen on j nnitt v hahmo.N in kirjastoihmisen kirjastosta ja varsinkin kirjastonhoitajista kertovat kirjat ovat aina mielenkiintoisia.T m menee ehdottomasti vinkkaukseen 1 6 luokkalaisille.

    Pues creo que yo le una historia diferente a todos los que le han dado tan buenos comentarios Me ha parecido una historia p sima, llena de clich s sobre la lectura y sobre las bibliotecarias No cumple con el pacto de ficci n y tampoco es divertida.

    ChrisDina Tsang
    Utterly hilarious.Who would believe a trouble maker turned out to be a book lover Embrace all possibilities of a child and let them develop a habit of reading, every new book quote, opens the door to a new world , would definitely recommend everyone to spend an hour or so to read this book

    Two brothers learn the joy of reading while trying to stay on the good side of a potato gun wielding librarian.

    Really enjoyed reading this to my Grade 4s

    Amanda Thompson
    Original BookTube review HEREEoin Colfer is best known for his wonderful Artemis Fowl series, but here he deviates by writing a story without fairies or magic Instead, we get a ninja librarian I think that s a fair trade off The one consistent thing about Colfer s writing in any genre is his side splitting humor Even writing for a much younger intended audience, he still manages to retain his wit and finesse with wordplay.This is recommended for readers 7 and up, and is definitely one that boys [...]

    Eoin Colfer is one of, if not my favorite author of all time So even though I am older, I went and bought The Legend of Spud Murphy Including the pictures, it is 95 pages long yet it really packs a lot in The book is about Will and Marty who have to spend part of their summer in the library gag Not only do they not want to read, they are nervous of the possible ninja librarian who has been rud to shoot kids with a potato gun Usually when I read books aimed towards the age this book is aimed at, [...]

    Het moet cht eens gedaan zijn met die stereotiepe verhalen over bibliotheken en hun personeelEen verschrikkelijke bibliothecaresse Die als een draak waakt over haar bibliotheek waar nog geen piepje mag weerklinken Duidelijk geschreven door een nitwit, die niet eens de moeite heeft gedaan om te zien hoeveel inspanningen bibliotheekpersoneel dagelijks levert om het allemaal maar naar ieders zin te maken Bibliotheken zijn al lang geen instellingen meer waar amper mag gezucht worden, het zijn net pl [...]

    i really enjoyed reading The Legend Of Spud Murphy It is a book that is likely targeted at an audience of 8 12 I m guessing , but it is still accessible to students older than that who might be reluctant or struggling readers Unlike other titles that I have read that aim at this audience, this book develops its storyline It might be a short read, but Colfer is skilled at developing a narrative and every brushstroke and piece of dialogue counts Even though I am a long way off the audience age gro [...]
