  • 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 t [...]


  • 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 m [...]


  • Voi että, tämä oli parempi kuin muistinkaan! Aivan mahtava! Toivoisin vaan, että meidänkin kirjastossa olisi tuon ikäisille (8-10 v.) jännittäviä lukukirjoja taistelevista jättiläisistä sun muista perinteisistä aiheista Tuntuu, että tuollaiset tarinat on enimmäkseen piilotettu paksuihin satukirjoihin ja kansanrunoushyllyyn ó_ò 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 more 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 more 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.


  • Rating: ★★★★☆ (3.5 stars)Eoin Colfer is one of my fave authors, couldn't help myself.Great book for kids! :)



  • 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 rumored to have a spud gun (hence the name). Read to 2nd and 3rd graders who more then once laughed out loud at the exploits.


  • Aivan mahtava kirja! Tämä on todella hyvin kirjoitettu! Se on hauska ja mielenkiintoinen. Pottu-Mäkinen on jännittävä hahmo.Näin kirjastoihmisenä kirjastosta ja varsinkin kirjastonhoitajista kertovat kirjat ovat aina mielenkiintoisia.Tämä menee ehdottomasti vinkkaukseen 1.-6. luokkalaisille.


  • I already think that Eoin Colfer is amazing, and tremendously funny. This book did nothing to dissuade me from my position. astrongbeliefinwicker


  • Pues creo que yo leí una historia diferente a todos los que le han dado tan buenos comentarios. Me ha parecido una historia pésima, llena de clichés sobre la lectura y sobre las bibliotecarias. No cumple con el pacto de ficción y tampoco es divertida.


  • 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.



  • 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 th [...]


  • After misbehaving at home during the holidays, brothers, Will and Marty are supposed to spend the remainder of their holidays in the library. The boys are not one bit happy about this decision but have no choice but to visit the library for three days a week.When Will and Marty arrive at the library they are met by the mean librarian, Spud Murphy. She shows them to the children’s section (with only four shelves!) and tells them not to move away from here or there will be trouble. Marty doesn [...]


  • Featured at An Abundance of BooksPoor Will is one of 5 boys (all under the age of 11) who are demolishing the house during summer vacation. His parents decide that Something Must Be Done, and that Something is sending him and his older brother Marty to the library three times a week. His mother is convinced that they'll love it, Will is convinced that they won't survive it. Their local library is home to the terrifying Spud Murphy, the meanest spud-gun-toting librarian in the universe. Of course [...]

Tim ist der Zweitälteste, Donni, Bert und HP (halbe Portion) sind die „Kleinen“ und spielen diese Trumpfkarte auch genüsslich und bewusst aus.In ihrer Verzweiflung beschließt ihre Mutter Tim und seinen älteren Bruder Marty drei Mal in der Woche für je zwei Stunden in der örtlichen Bücherei zu parken. Ein schauriger Ort, der von Knolle Murphy, einer fiesen und gemeinen Bibliothekarin regiert wird. Die [...]




  • 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 rumored to shoot kids with a potato gun. Usually when I read books aimed towards the age this book is [...]


  • Will and Marty are boisterous kids. And their parents have had it. So they decide they're going to spend the summer going to the library instead of outside playing. They're devastated! Why would they want to spend the summer READING? Well, even worse than that, the librarian is a totalitarian executioner--er, well, a strict woman with a reputation for shooting kids with a potato gun if the so much as step off the children's section carpet. Will they outsmart her? Or . . . will she help them unde [...]


  • Het moet écht 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 zi [...]


  • Will and his older brother Marty are reluctantly sent to the library to do something a bit more 'educational' with their summer holiday. But the library holds a much greater danger than just paper cuts. It is home to the legendry Mrs Murphy who uses a gas-powered, potato-shooting gun on children who cross her. The well known tales of poor 'Ugly Frank' and the Ninja Librarian make the Woodman boys dread even stepping inside the building.Whilst the boys sit and pretend to read, an odd thing happen [...]

When their parents decide tehy should do "something educational" and their mom settles on dropping them off at the library, they are terrified. They are terrified because of the legend of Mrs. Murphy, the librarian, who is rumored to shoot potatoes at any child who misbehaves, permanently scarring their faces.When their mom forces them to go despite their pleas otherwise, they me [...]


  • 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 ag [...]
