Marley and the Kittens by John Grogan


Marley and the Kittens by John Grogan

Packed with action and hilarious antics, this is the fourth picture book about Marley the loveable but naughty puppy, who first appeared in the phenomenally bestselling novel, 'Marley and Me'...and also starring some very cute kittens! When a pair of adorable kittens join the family, Marley is so excited to have two new friends to play with that he follows the felines everywhere! But Marley is no graceful kitten. By imitating their gentle behaviour, he unintentionally makes a mess all over the house and gets into big trouble for it. What did I do this time? he wonders. Marley is afraid he may have lost his number-one status in the household...until an unlikely pair remind him and his family that no one's purrrrr-fect! In a story that hilariously reveals the differences between cats and dogs, everyone's favourite misbehaving pup learns form some new friends just how special he really is.


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.'
