The Legend of Spud Murphy
by Eoin Colfer
What's it like to have 5 brothers and live in a trailer? Ask Will. It smells like old socks, campground outhouses and sweat. The worst part is one never knows if your hair will be shaved off in the middle of the night or if your underwear will be hanging on the mail box the next morning—guys are crazy with practical jokes, and brothers are the worst. They are so bad in fact, that Will's mom decides Will and Marty, his older, crazier brother, are going to be spending 2 hours a week at the local library so she can have a break—the library where Mrs. Murphy, a.k.a “Spud” Murphy works. Spud has a tight gray bun, beady little eyes behind cloudy glasses and a mean cannon of a gun under the front desk that she loads with hard potatoes and launches at noisy library customers. (Aren't you glad I'm not like that?) Anyway, Will has no plans to cross her, but his older brother Will decides it's on...what do you think will happen?
