    It didn't help that the war paint was stolen from Mom's makeup box. When their mother comes Marty and Will don't want to go home. Before he realizes it, he's half way through the book. Spud Murphy spudded him. Quickly Marty and Will finish all the books in the children's section and don't know what to do.

    In their summer holidays their mother decides that they should take up an educative hobby, so she sends them to the library twice a week. Her suspects fall immediately on Marty, who confesses that he took the book because they had both finished all the ones in the children's section. The librarian's fame, Spud Murphy, is a legendary terror for those who dare to enter the library. And their parents have had it. Excerpts are provided by Dial-A-Book Inc.

    They gave her the full baby treatment-big baby eyes, gap-tooth smiles-and HP even sucked his thumb. Her suspects fall immediately on Marty, who confesses that he took the book because they had both finished all the ones in the children's section. They're teasing us already. I thought my head would pop with the unfairness of it all. Murphy meant when she said she sometimes forgot the library was about books?
