Based on the author's bestselling adult title, MARLEY & ME, this charming picture book follows the hilarious difficulty of raising Marley, a sweet, blond Labrador puppy. Instead of becoming a docile, attentive dog, Marley gets bigger and gets into all sorts of trouble involving eating things he shouldn't, leaping through screen doors, and even digging into the walls. But when the family decides it's time for Marley to find a new home, he saves the day. With expressive, full-color artwork.
Mommy, Daddy, Cassie, and Baby Louie welcome Marley, their new Labrador pup, into their family. But Marley doesn't stay a tiny puppy for long. He grows and grows, and the bigger Marley gets, the bigger trouble he gets into. Big, bad-boy trouble. Whether it's chewing Mommy's reading glasses or swallowing Daddy's paycheck, Marley is a dog like no other. He tries to be a good dog, honest he does, but everything he tries ends up bad. Then one day Marley goes too far. Will this family have to find a new home for their big, crazy, pure-hearted dog?
Inspired by John Grogan's bestselling memoir, Marley & Me, this heartwarming story shows that loving someone, flaws and all, can reap huge rewards.
