Update: We did it! We read the whole thing together! In Chapter 20, Beating the Odds, I left out only a few details, and then we had a conversation about some pretty advanced issues for a 5-year-old, and he really seemed to process very well. It was a while before we read another chapter, but when we got back to it, I didn't leave anything else out, and we finished the book. . . including Marley's death. Samuel ...more
Marley, a Yellow Lab, was not only the most destructive dog I've ever heard of, but also the funniest! There's no way on earth I would have kept a dog that ate, chewed on or ripped up anything AND flunked obedience school twice! But, I have to admit, I was cracking up at some of his antics.
Yes, Marley, at age 13, is failing in health and mobility and is eventually put to sl ...more
In this condensed version of John Grogan's best-selling MARLEY & ME, the author has written an adapted version of his life and times with his Labrador Retriever, Marley, that's perfect for younger readers.
Having read and fully enjoyed MARLEY ME when it was first released, I was a little anxious to see how Mr. Grogan would handle a shorter, easier-to-read version for the middle-grade set. Fortunately, MARLEY: A DOG LIKE NO OTHER is a fun, vibrant, and compe ...more
My son picked this up from the library as his weekly reader book - he's 8! I was worried about the subject matter - having skipped the movie (on purpose, I am such a sap and knew I'd leave the theater sobbing incoherently) I feared this book would be 'too advanced' for a 2 ...more

I ended up with this version instead of the Marley and Me. I felt shortchanged because I read it in one sitting this morning.
Marley wasn't all that unique. My Westie, though smaller and not as destructive, is similar. The mischief and fun, loyalty and devotion that builds and builds thoughout the first two thirds, made me feel like Marley is my own. Then, when Marley ages, we're wi ...more
