A back-to-school picture book featuring Marley, everyone’s favorite troublemaking dog-now in paper-over-board format
It’s the first day of school, and Cassie is all set to go. So is Marley! Although he’s told to stay, Marley digs a tunnel out of the backyard and sniffs his way to school. As he roams the halls looking for Cassie, he finds trouble instead. From wolfing down hot dogs in the cafeteria to setting free a bunch of mice in science class, Marley won’t stop until he locates his best friend. This lovable and rowdy dog may not be much of an academic, but he’s full of school spirit!
Packed with action and hilarious Marley bad-boy antics, this handy paper-over-board edition of the original bestselling picture book will leave readers howling for more. Awooo!
This book is awesome. I am quite certain it will be my favorite back-to-school read this year. Funny and full of smart humorous and pure fun. I love it. So silly, but in all the right ways. I love being able to show my almost three year old the picture of massacred school supplies and asking what is what. This is a keeper and a recommended read for sure!
