The Lovereading4Kids comment
With five brothers in one house things often get out of hand. When Dad has ‘had enough’, he decides that Will and Marty should spend the afternoon in the Library. But he doesn’t know about the librarian, Mrs Murphy…Can Will and Marty survive the legendary librarian and her gas-powered spud-gun? How the two brothers and the librarian bring about change the library needs is a funny and exciting adventure with touching consequences.
Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
