Who knew homework could be so delicious?
Oh, no! Marley, that irrepressible puppy with a big appetite for trouble, eats Cassie’s homework in this funny Marley I Can Read! Cassie has worked hard on her very first science project-a solar system mobile made out of fruit. She wakes up before school to find herself without her homework and in need of a quick fix. Can Marley somehow make up for his cosmic mistake and help Cassie get her project in on time?
Marley’s newest beginning reader is filled with out-of-this-world laughs, perfect for anyone who’s ever suffered from a case of disappearing homework.
Marley’s is fun and always into trouble. At first I was thinking this would be like Dixie but it was a lot better and perhaps with an older character. This is a great early reader to encourage looking on the bright side of things and for moving forward. Disaster is apparently not the end of the world.
