Marley: A Dog Like No Other - Reading Level: Ages 9-12

I give this book two paws up. Loved it!!! I've listened to it on CD several times.

âMarleyâ will take you on adventures that will make you laugh so hard you cry. It is a âMust Readâ for anyone who owns a Labrador. You will develop a special bond with Marley and John. I think every dog owner, everyone who thought of owning a dog should read this wonderful book.

You may want to note there are two versions of this book:

(1) âMarley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog John Groganâ (First book?)

(2) Marley: A Dog Like No Other - Reading Level: Ages 9-12 (same storyâ¦but age appropriate for younger readers)

I have both versions and I've enjoyed both. This is one book (or 2) I will be keeping for myself and will be buying copies to give as gifts.

This book is one of the funniest I've ever read!! The laughs were well worth the sad parts. The book is funny not only because of Marley's funny antics, but the way John Grogan words thing make it twice as funny! I've read it again and again, and it still has me laughing and crying!

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 compelling read that even older elementary school students will enjoy.

When John and his wife, Jenny, first pick Marley out from a litter of pure-blood Labradors, they have no idea that their small bundle of fur with the big paws and blocky head will eventually turn into a 97-pound drool-machine full of nerves, excitement, and limitless energy. This short story (196 pages) is a testament to the trials, tribulations, and ultimate loyalty of a dog who ended up starring in a feature film.

Marley is the type of dog that you love, despite his flaws (and there are many!), and even the youngest of readers will be overjoyed to read about the trouble that he finds himself in on a daily basis. And, I admit, I shed a few tears towards the end of this book, but they were well worth it, because Marley was worth it.

One great benefit of this version of Marley's story are the numerous full-color photographs that the author has included. This addition alone makes MARLEY: A DOG LIKE NO OTHER an asset to your home library.
