“Lester and artist Munsinger . . . team up again for another rib-tickling, off-the-wall tale.” –Booklist

Murdley Gurdson is a spectacularly accident-prone boy. He falls into wastebaskets! He drops only the most valuable vases. Worse yet: “Whatever happened, it was usually his fault.” One day, as Murdley is taking a walk, a bird lays an egg above him and it splats on his head. How could that really be Murdley's fault? Turns out, it sort of is. Munsinger's hilarious illustrations help make this silly story about cause and effect as lighthearted as it is useful. This read-aloud favorite is now part of a fun hardcover series about life lessons.

Includes downloadable audio!
