Read full description of the books Legenda Pottu-Mäkisestä: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 terrifying and legendary ‘Spud Murphy’ the elderly librarian whose favourite hobby is to shoot noisy and naughty children with her hidden spud gun, so are initially apprehensive about their sentence.
The story develops very quickly and is full of humour, both physical and verbal (with some great banter between the brothers). Although based in a library, there is an element of adventure for the young members, and we see their desire to cause mischief change into a desire for reading. There is an underlying message that books and libraries offer escape into the imagination, and that judging people from rumour and hearsay usually results in false perception, as Spud Murphy turns out to be a caring a friendly women. At around 90 pages long, the book has great illustrations to break up the text, but will be quite demanding for very young readers who may have shorter attention spans. Overall I found the book an excellent, fun read and would definitely recommend for children over the age of 8-9.
