"Murphy-Stop-That is my name. I am a terrier. I bark. I bark at anything and everything and all the time."
As he goes through his day -- barking, eating, outsmarting the dumb animals on the farm, putting up with a visit to the vet -- Murphy never loses his doggy enthusiasm, even when he has to sleep out in the barn.
In her charming new tale, acclaimed author and illustrator Alice Provensen shows that every dog -- even a bad dog -- has his day.
Alice Provensen is the author and illustrator of "Murphy in the City", "A Day in the Life of Murphy", and "Klondike Gold". She collaborated with her late husband, Martin, on many other highly acclaimed picture books, including the Caldecott Medal-winning "The Glorious Flight" and Nancy Willard's Newbery Medal-winning "A Visit to William Blake's Inn", which was also a Caldecott Honor Book. The Provensens have been on the "New York Times" list of the Ten Best Illustrated Books eight times. Alice lives in California.
