Book Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great kids book! May 10, 2007
Format:Hardcover
My wife and I both laughed and cried at "Marley & Me," and were delighted when we found this young kids book featuring the immortal Marley. Our 16 month old daughter loves it. Highly recommended!

I read "Marley and Me" and absolutely loved it, so I was thrilled when I saw this children's book, "Bad Dog, Marley". I read it in the store and laughed out loud at the story and the hilarious illustrations! I showed my husband, and he loved it too.
The illustrations are adorable and children will love looking at Marley climbing onto the counters to get at cake, drinking out of the toilet, digging through the wall to hid from the storm, or saving Baby Louie by picking him up by his diaper.
The story line is similar to "Marley and Me" in that it is about a sweet, bumbling dog who tries to do well, but whose enthusiasm and energy end up getting him in trouble. In the end, Marley saves the day and the family comes to appreciate the special gift they have -- even if he did eat Dad's paycheck and destroy the couch.
This is going right on my child's bookshelf!

5.0 out of 5 stars kids loved it August 10, 2007
Format:Hardcover
It is a cute book that had my kids rolling.("Me go again") It is a sweet puppy story. If you have a new puppy or have gone through the raising of a new puppy the children will really appreciate it. Mine are 7,6, 4 and a 1/2. They all laughed out loud. (Go figure!)

5.0 out of 5 stars My first exposure to John Grogan and Marley May 11, 2008
Format:Hardcover
When one of my students insisted I read this book to the class, I admittedly did so with a grain of salt. I mean, how many naughty doggy stories can anyone possibly write? I had never heard of John Grogan and was not at all sure of what to expect. What I read has to be one of the most charming, heartfelt, and hilarious stories ever written to children about a dog. In simplified, child-friendly prose, Grogan tells the story-book version of how he and his family acquired a very bad puppy named Marley. Marley is full of trouble and horendously destructive. But, as we are told, he tried so hard to be good! It has all the right drama (while I'm not sure what is true and what is story) and Grogan has an incredible gift for writing that splashes personality and humor directly into the story. I have fallen in love with a naughty puppy named Marley.

What a wonderful children's version of John Grogan's heartwarming story of his crazy yellow lab. The illustrations really fit the story to a T.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Dog, Marley is a GOOD BOOK! July 5, 2007
Format:Hardcover
This is a fun book about a family's unconditional love for a dog whose behavior is less than perfect. Marley gets himself into all kinds of naughty situations. But in the end, he wins over the family's heart, making it worth all the trouble he causes. I highly recommend this book. Kids will identify with a dog who just can't seem to get it right. I love this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bah boo boo waddy! December 17, 2008
Format:Hardcover
I have read this book to my children at LEAST 1000 times, and when Baby Louie says "Bah boo boo waddy" peals of laughter follow. It is, quite probably the best entertainment value we have EVER received. A great book that your kids will love!

4.0 out of 5 stars Daughter loved it August 12, 2007
Format:Hardcover
Very cute story but I didn't want to hear my 2 year old saying "Bad Dog" to our dog all the time so I changed the words a bit in the story until she is older. Great follow up to the adult book.

Nice, simple, sweet story. If you have a puppy, you know how it is! We do, and it can be as exhausting as the kids. My kids loved the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE DOGS? This is good!
My youngest loves dogs and thus, this was a good pick. However, I've found that all my children (7, 5, 4 and 2) love listening. They love Marley's antics and baby Louis' baby talk.
