    "Murphy-stop-that is the name of the terrier who tells this story, in which, appropriately, since it depicts a day in the life of a dog, nothing much happens. There's the fixation with food and the smelling out of mice and a trip to the vet's . . . but don't expect a lot of plot here. Narrator Jason Harris zestfully enacts the dog's frenzy of joy over food smells, his panting voice, his inner struggle over trying not to bark, and his yappy little bark that cannot be suppressed. Provensen is a well-known illustrator, and her pictures, along with Harris's lively rendition of the canine, are sure to strike a chord with dog owners."
    Review by: School Libray Journal - July 15, 2006
    "Farm terrier, Murphy-Stop-That, shares a day in his life, in this fun adaptation of Alice Provensen's picture book. Narrator Jason Harris gives Murphy a scrappy personality with an eager demeanor and often breathless voice. The first-person account follows what appears to be an ordinary day in the life of Murphy which turns out to be filled with scads of mischief, lots of food, and even an unwelcome trip to the vet. Provensen illustrates Murphy's day with unusual vocabulary words such as "whirring," "snivel," and "lolling." However, sensitive parents might also be wary of an abundance of the word "dumb" in the text. The narration is brought to life with sound effects and upbeat background music. One side of the recording has page-turn signals."
