Write a diary entry as Marty about the trip to the library.

The Legend Of Spud Murphy by Eoin Colfer

 

I thought the tales and stories about Spud Murphy were exaggerated or made up but on first impressions she does seem like quite a fierce character. Maybe the boys were right to be reluctant to go to the library and for their sake's let's hope they behave.
