I don't normally go out of my way to review books but I had to say, this book is cute, and my son actually loves it very much. I've had to read it every night for the past 2 weeks. However, there is baby talk in it that is so irritating to repeat and he uses the word "stupid" at the end of the book. I don't encourage the use of that word by my kids and I change it to "silly" but come on. It's a kids book, I shouldn't have to bother censoring it. Just sayin!

The story in Marley and the Kittens is cute and very well-written/well-paced/well told. That said, I found the illustrations to be very unappealing. The proportions are inconsistent and off in a way that is puzzling at best (i.e. when a character is one size relative to its surroundings in one picture and another size in another). Sometimes the distortion is actually disturbing, i.e. I thought "Mommy" was a daughter or maybe a teenage babysitter. The baby is rendered in an odd shape, and overall there is a kind of 1950's illustration vibe going on that just doesn't work here. I wanted to like the book for the story alone, but illustrations are important in a picture book, and I found the ones in Marley and the Kittens to be a distraction.

Filled with colorful illustrations, I first came across this book at work in a special needs kindergarten. I soon appreciated what a cute story it is. I'm expecting a grandchild this autumn so I hope that by reading this delightful little book with my oldest grandson, he will see that just because he isn't the youngest and newest in the family, he is still loved and valued.

I love this book. I work for a school district and read "Bad Dog Marley" to my students and they loved it. I plan on buying all of the Marley books.

Ok, I admit, I cried when I read Marley and Me. So, I was both hesitant and delighted to discover that John wrote some very age appropriate books that I would be able to use to teach predicting skills to my Kindergarten students!! The children were very curious after being asked to make predictions ( they were shown the pictures only and asked questions about what they thought was going to happen next meanwhile I was writing copious notes about what they said) to hear the story....and then...the discussions/sharing of personal experiences really started! I highly recommend this book for teachers and parents alike.

I myself am not a huge fan of the Marley children's books, however, my 4 year old daughter is. This one is especially her favorite because she says the dog and two cats on the cover look like our dog and cats (they kind of do.) She saw this book at Target and it was around $17.00, which is too much for me to spend on a children's book that has the possibility of getting destroyed by my two year old. I got the same book on Amazon for less then $10.00 and that is an awesome deal!

I wanted to add that I see this book is now $12.23, but when I purchased in late 2010 it was $9.89. Still a good deal though!
