The Legend of Spud Murphy by Eoin Colfer. il. Glenn McCoy.
Hyperion Books for Children: NY, 2004.

In an attempt to control the behavior of Will and his brother, their parents are forcing them to spend summer days at the library. They expect to be bored to death under the watchful eye of mean Spud Murphy. She won't even let them step off the carpet in front of the children's books! This is too much of a challenge for Will, but what will be the consequence? Will she blast him with the potato gun the kids are sure she keeps behind the counter? Will she detect his movements? Will this undertaking lead him to a totally unexpected adventure?
note: author of the acclaimed Artemis Fowl series
