Marley, the enthusiastic Labrador retriever first introduced in the bestselling memoir MARLEY AND ME, stars in this storybook written especially for young readers. In this adventure, Marley and his human family are eagerly preparing for Christmas. However, Marley's unbridled enthusiasm for the holiday leads him into several misadventures such as destroying some decorations and mistaking the Christmas tree as his very own, quite lovely, indoor...potty. Will Marley's mistakes ruin the holiday for everyone? Or will he, perhaps, remind his family of what Christmas is really all about? Color illustrations accompany the text.
With all the excitement of Christmas approaching, it's no surprise that Marley, the lovable pup with a nose for trouble, wants to get in on the action. Anticipating his very first snowfall and Santa's arrival, Marley jumps in to help his family every way he can. But Marley, being Marley, always ends up on the wrong side of right. It's not long before he tears down the twinkle lights, attacks a chain of paper snowflakes, and mistakes the Christmas tree for . . . well . . . his very own indoor bathroom. Will Marley's good intentions ruin everything before Christmas begins? Or will he manage to share some Christmas magic with his family after all?
This follow-up to the #1 bestselling Bad Dog, Marley! delivers a heartfelt holiday story with many hilarious Marley mishaps along the way.
