Description


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.

Praise For…


“Stein’s wide-eyed, floppy-eared, and utterly adorable protagonist is a small pup in an often overwhelming world…. 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.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Children who recognize themselves in Murray will feel seen and, hopefully, empowered. A gem of a picture book, expertly crafted and oh-so-relatable.” — Horn Book (starred review)

“[This] book provides young kids a lens through which to approach their own anxieties…. Viewers with any kind of fear will find a kindred soul in Murray, and they’ll also learn that being brave can bring its own rewards.” — Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“An entertaining look at dealing with fears.” — ALA Booklist
