Summary

The perfect gift for dog lovers!

Bark, George meets Wemberly Worried in this new classic picture book from David Ezra Stein, Caldecott Honor-winning creator of Interrupting Chicken and Leaves. The ideal read for back-to-school anxiety and soothing nerves all year long.

Murray worries...about lots of things.

He doesn't want to go out in the rain. He's scared of the barking dogs at the park. Fireworks make him jump.

But gradually he learns that he can put on a raincoat. He can make new friends. He can be brave.

From Caldecott Honor-winning artist David Ezra Stein comes a tender and reassuring story about facing our fears, whatever they may be.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Murray is a cautious young pup: he'd rather not go outside in the rain, he's leery of a big dog he meets at the park, he prefers to skip a BBQ to avoid firecrackers, and going to sleep alone is out of the question. Luckily, his owner understands these fears (offering him a raincoat, much encouragement, and company while he falls asleep), and while sometimes scary things do happen, Murray feels proud that he's tried new things. This big-eyed pooch is at his comic best when imagining the horrors that might befall him: nearly drowning in a puddle, losing his tiny chew toy to an enormous dog, shrinking in terror under a barrage of fireworks, and reliving nightmares of his worst fears. Stein's mixed-media illustrations place Murray front and center, with depicted humans often shown from the waist down to conjure Murray's perspective. The illustrations include a mix of full-page and smaller spot art, which combine with the brief, easy-reader-style text to offer an entertaining look at dealing with fears."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Stein's (The Worm Family Has Its Picture Taken) wide-eyed, floppy-eared, and utterly adorable protagonist is a small pup in an often overwhelming world, shown in fluid multimedia cartoons as far from in command of his surroundings. Murray worries about a lot of things: getting washed away by a rainstorm, a big dog in the park who might be a bully, the cat print hung near his bed that, to Murray's eyes, seems downright ghoulish. But the omniscient narrator--Murray's loving owner--never belittles the pooch, instead offering whatever's needed to help Murray venture out into the world. Rainstorm? Murray gets a snappy yellow slicker that makes him wag his tail. Big dog? The narrator offers reassurance: "He's nice." Scary feline art? "I'll stay right here with you while you fall asleep." The solutions aren't absolutely foolproof: that big friendly dog still has a very loud bark. But Murray knows, as readers will, that being loved, looked out for, and celebrated as "brave" for trying new things makes all the difference--and when one possesses that, a dog can have his day. Ages 4--8. (June)"
