Murphy doesn't want to go to school. He has butterflies in his tummy and ants in his pants! But no amount of made-up excuses convince his dad to let him stay home. Just when Murphy has all but given up, his father brings him up-to-date-it's Saturday!
Now available as an 8x8 paperback with stickers, this picturebook is full of comic sympathy for young students.
Praise for Ready for School, Murphy?
"Bright colors, good use of thought bubbles, and the use of close-ups for effect combine to draw and keep readers' attention. . . . Readers' empathy for Murphy will be very strong even before the final page turn."

About the Author
Brendán Murphy was born in Dublin, Ireland and picked up all his best excuses from his younger brother and sisters. When home sick with goose bumps or a frog in his throat, he read comic books. Brendán attended Pittsburg State University in Kansas, where every summer he painted yellow lines on the brick roads, and the University of Cincinnati School of Design, where he learned to color inside and outside the lines. Brendán lives and works in New York with his wife, Catherine, and his two sons, Aran and Rowan.
