    2. not my favorite of her books, but still cute. I did think the egg thing a little creepy when they go back and he eats it with the bird who laid it in the kitchen with him.

    3. Murdley Gurdson is a clumsy, absentminded boy whose frequent misfortunes are usually his own fault. One day he is walking along in one shoe (having lost the other) when a bird above him lays an egg which breaks on his head. He confronts the bird, who shifts responsibility for the accident to an aardvark, which had screamed, scaring her into laying the egg. The aardvark blames a pygmy hippo who stepped on his tail provoking the scream; and the hippo gives another reason which points to Murdley Gu [...]

    4. We all make mistakes, but this is a silly (what I call a circle book ends where it started) So one thing lead to another thing and so ond of course it all works out. What bothers me about this book is the bird lays an egg on his head.but at the end then the bird scrambles the egg for the boy to eat make the boy happy (lemonade out of lemons) the bird is killing its baby, to scramble it up for the boy to make him happy?Kids know aren't going to pick that upI thought it was a little strange! :-D

    5. This book is fantastic. To start with, how could you not love a book about a character named Mudley Gurdson? But I love the idea of chain events and how one action can influence another. What I really love about this short little story is the way it can show children that while your actions have consequences, you don't need to feel that things are your "fault". That it's what you do as a result of those consequences and your attitude towards them that really counts.

    6. It Wasn't MY Fault was a great story about a little boy who is very clumsy and lacks self-esteem. The book took me on a walk through one of his day and the little things that go wrong for him. They show his encounters with animals who come across as the only things he can talk to. This was a great story to read about what it is like for a boy who lacks that self-esteem and the sadness he endures.The illustrations were went along with the text to show the characters true sadness. I was just looki [...]

One day when a large egg hits his head, he sets out to find out whose fault it is. Hilarity ensues and the characters involved are truly funny. This is an adorable little book.Kids will relate to goofy things happening in the book and find them to be a laugh out loud adventure of discovery. I loved everything about this book [...]

    8. We've read most of the books in the Tacky series by Helen Lester and Lynn M. Munsinger, so I was excited to see that they'd collaborated on another series. This book is part of the Laugh-Along Lessons books that help to teach children about ethical and moral themes. I thought that this was an entertaining story about responsibility. The narrative is short and easy to read aloud and the illustrations are colorful and cartoonish.

    9. Murdley Gurdson is always having accidents that are not his fault. One day, he was out walking and lost his shoe. The next thing he knows is that there is an egg on his head and he is wondering whose fault it is. The bird tells him that it wasn’t his fault because an aardvark screamed and scared him. The aardvark screamed because the hippo stepped on his tall. The hippo stepped on his tail because a hopping shoe about ran him over. The hopping shoe turned out to be a rabbit in Murdely’s lost [...]

    10. Everyone can remember a time where something pretty bad happened and they didn't want to be the one blamed. Well in It Wasn't My Fault, Helen Lester does just that. Murdley Gurdson is our main character in this book, he is our average guy who blames things on everyone no matter how small! However, one day it actually isn't Murdley's fault. While reading this fun book, you will never want to stop turning the pages. Following Gurdson on his journey to the truth is funny and the illustrations are w [...]

    11. I picked up this book at the request of my seven-year-old daughter who loves this author’s “Tacky” books. Helen Lester’s books usually have very inviting covers. “It Wasn’t My Fault” is a book about taking responsibility. It begins with a boy who has many unfortunate things happen to him. When an egg drops on his head one day, he blames the bird. The bird, however, blames someone else, an aardvark. This goes on for a while until the boy has to face the fact that it was his fault he [...]

    12. As Dex (5yo) is very fond of assigning blame on others for things lately, I thought this book my be a good story for him. It's about a little boy who ends up with an egg cracked on his head. The little boy declares that it wasn't his fault that happened and sets out to discover who, EXACTLY, is to blame for the mess. Along the way he finds out that maybe, in a round about way, HE is the one who caused the problem.Fun illustrations.

    13. This is a sweet little story. I liked Murdley Gurdson's name, for starters--that's a fun one to read. I also liked how the author included some animals that aren't normally featured in picture books. And I liked how Murdley figures out the chain of events that led to him having an egg on his head--and how the animals helped cheer him up about it.

    14. I appreciate the way Helen Lester can approach behavior-related issues with just the right touch of humor and without being didactic. Read this one in your classroom when your kids refuse to take responsibility for their actions.

    15. This is a silly story about a boy who always messes things up. This would be great to use in order to get students thinking about self-esteem.
