More About the Author

Eoin Colfer (pronounced Owen) is the New York Times best-selling author

of the blockbuster Artemis Fowl series as well as Airman; Half Moon

Investigations; The Supernaturalist; Eoin Colfer's Legend of... books;

The Wish List; Benny and Omar; and Benny and Babe. He was born in

Wexford on the southeast coast of Ireland in 1965, where he and his four

brothers were brought up by his father (an elementary school teacher,

historian and artist of note) and mother (a drama teacher). He first

developed an interest in writing in primary (elementary) school with

gripping Viking stories inspired by history that he was learning in

school at the time.

Eoin got his degree from Dublin University and qualified as a primary

school teacher, returning to work in Wexford. He married in 1991 and he

and his wife spent about 4 years between 1992 and 1996 working in Saudi

Arabia, Tunisia and Italy. His first book, Benny and Omar, was published

in 1998, based on his experiences in Tunisia; it has since been

translated into many languages; a sequel followed in 1999. In 2001, the

first Artemis Fowl book was published worldwide to much success -

shortly thereafter he left teaching to concentrate fully on his writing.

To this day, Eoin has written 6 Artemis Fowl books which have sold over

12 million copies worldwide.

Product Description

Eoin Colfer's Legend of the Worst Boy in the World Growing up with four complainers for brothers, Will Woodman has a hard time getting an audience for his own troubles. He has to wait in line to gripe to his mom--and that leaves his dad. But since his dad is so busy, Will has to defer to his older (and faster) brother Marty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Its so awesome 7 Sep 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on
It is such an awesome book! It is written by a great author. I love all his books. Artemis Fowl and The Supernaturalist are some of my favorites. the Worst Boy is a funny story and is a good story because it has some funny things like bunny P.J's and wanting revenge over a gummy.

My 10 year old daughter was very enthusiastic about it, and read it without prompting. She said she enjoyed it and would read it again, soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars So funny and engaging for kids and adults! 16 April 2011
By By heidisg - Published on
This book has my students and I rolling on the floor laughing every time I read it. I am an elementary school librarian in New Hampshire and I read this aloud to all of my 2nd grade classes around this time of year. It take us two or three weeks to get through since I only see them once a week, but they HATE leaving the library when I'm in the middle of it....especially when we get to the part where Will and Marty start their "walking the line" adventure. There are parts of it I can barely read because I'm laughing so hard. I SO hope Mr. Colfer plans to write another one of these "Legend of..." stories!
3.0 out of 5 stars OK but not great. 9 Feb 2014

I read the Eoin Colfer book "The Legend of Spud Murphy" to some of my 2nd grade library classes and they begged for more. I tried telling them that it wasn't part of a series but they kept after me, so I ordered another Legend of book. I have to say, they did not really enjoy this book and haven't asked for another. If Spud had more adventures, I would buy them in a second! "Worst Boy in the World" just missed the mark.
