Meet Murphy ... the unluckiest dog in Ireland!
Whatever could go wrong, would always go wrong,
when I was around.
Wherever I set a paw,
bad luck was always sure to follow.
We called it, ‘Murphy’s law’!

We really loved this story. We’d give it 10 out of 10. It’s a great story for all ages. Ben, who is 8, loved reading it to his sisters who are 3 and 6. Top marks from us! By Ben, 2nd class St Brigid’s NS, Bagenalstown, Co Carlow
funny and heartwarming … cleverly illustrated by Paul Nugent who has captured each of Murphy’s mishaps with a light touch but plenty of detail making sure that there is plenty of laughter as we read
a dog-lover’s delight … a celebration of friendship and being happy in your own skin/fur coat
a delightful little story about a pup called Murphy who is down on his luck. As an ode to the adage ‘anything that can go wrong will go wrong’, wherever Murphy and his owner Mary go, bad luck seems to follow. But they are determined to get to the root of ail the chaos that ensues around them because Murphy isn’t a bad pup, just one with bad luck. Paul Nugent’s illustrations are full of expressive characters and amusing scenarios with little Easter eggs scattered throughout the pages of typical Irish pantry fillers, because what beach picnic would be complete without a bag of ‘Tayters’. An adorable storybook about the bond between animal and owner with a lovely sentiment of how to turn a negative into a positive and see the glass as half full. And if one thing is for certain it’s that “puppy hugs always make humans happy”. How true a statement. Recommended for ages three to six years
