Overview

When a pair of adorable kittens joins 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 behavior, 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 reminds him and his family that no one's purrrrr-fect!

In a story that hilariously reveals the differences between cats and dogs, everyone's favorite misbehaving pup learns from some new friends just how special he really is.

Editorial Reviews

The fourth Marley picture book spotlights the imaginative, irrepressible, lovable canine behaving like an archetypal "bad dog."

The Marley series is a fun, adventure for children. Marley is a lovable, very spirited dog that absolutely loves to get into trouble and this latest book is no exception. My 4 year old daughter loves to laugh along with his "mis"adventures, while my 7 and 9 year old daughters think he is cute. We have all of the books in the series. The illustrations are very realistic. In this latest installment, Marley and his family find two baby kittens unattended so they take them home to care for them. Marley is so excited to have new friends. Once they get home Marley tries to do what the kittens do i.e. the kittens are playing with the cords from the window blinds gently tapping the cord back and forth. Marley wants to join in the fun and of course jumps up and breaks the blinds. This continues until Marley finally gets into big trouble and wishes they'd never brought the kittens home. Of course, the story does end will. I would recommend this adorable series.

We love the Marley books and it's so neat that they also come in little childrens' versions. This is a cute one... and we plan on reading it during "Read Share" in our Kindergarten class... plus we LOVE yellow labs, of course.

This is another great "Marley" kids' book and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. However, I wish I had purchased the book instead of buying the Nook version. The pictures were small and the print was very hard to read. If you expand it in order to see the print, you lose part of the picture and can't flip the pages without returning it to normal size. It was like reading a tiny little picture book. Great story, bad Nook format!

Marley and his family went out into the country for a picnic. On their way home, Marley was enjoying all the smells of the country by sticking his nose out the window. But then, "Aroof! Woof! Woof!" Marley found something and Daddy stopped the car. What did Marley find? Mommy, Daddy, Cassie and Baby Louie followed Marley into the grass where they found.two adorable kittens! They can't leave the babies alone so the kitties are brought home with the family. Good Marley! Once home, the kittens work their magic and the family quickly falls in love. They run, and play, and pounce. But when Marley tries to do the same thing, watch out! Disaster follows. And when the kittens discover their litter box, well, let's just say that Marley's attempts at using the litter box result in hilarity. Marley and the Kittens is an absolutely adorable book that easily outlines the differences between kittens and puppies. Poor Marley just can't seem to do anything right. But it's not because he's bad, he's a dog and not nearly as agile and graceful as his two new friends. The story is funny, and sweet, and should elicit many giggles from young readers. Illustrated by Richard Cowdrey, who has illustrated several of the other Marley children's books, the pictures are absolutely wonderful. Full of charm and character, they will draw children into the story and have them wishing Marley could come live with them. In short, it looks like Grogan and Cowdrey have another winner on their hands. Quill says: Fluffy kittens, a silly dog and a big mess make Marley and the Kittens a winner!
