Bad Dog, Marley! by John Grogan


Bad Dog, Marley! by John Grogan

A heart-warming picture book about the World's Worst Dog, inspired by John Grogan's phenomenally bestselling memoir, Marley and Me. Mummy, Daddy, Cassie and Baby Louie welcome Marley, their new Labrador puppy, 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. Until, one day, Marley goes too far...Will Marley's family have to find him a new home?


Reviews for Marley and Me: '...a very funny Valentine ... full of tail-thumping enthusiasm.

'This is a wonderful, moving book that even non-dog-lovers cannot fail to enjoy.'

'Made me laugh so much that I pulled a muscle in my solar plexus.'
