Synopses & Reviews
Mommy, Daddy, Cassie, and Baby Louie welcome Marley, their new Labrador pup, into their family. But Marley doesn't stay a tiny puppy for long. He grows and grows, and the bigger Marley gets, the bigger trouble he gets into. Big, bad-boy trouble. Whether it's chewing Mommy's reading glasses or swallowing Daddy's paycheck, Marley is a dog like no other. He tries to be a good dog, honest he does, but everything he tries ends up bad. Then one day Marley goes too far. Will this family have to find a new home for their big, crazy, pure-hearted dog?
Inspired by John Grogan's bestselling memoir, Marley & Me, this heartwarming story shows that loving someone, flaws and all, can reap huge rewards.

Scout, the lovable puppy of Puppy Diaries
fame, stars in her own picture book
Poor Scout. She wants so much to make friends with the other dogs at the dog park. She tries all her best puppy tricks--splashing, playing keepaway--but the older dogs ignore her. At the end of the day, she still has only one friend: her favorite toy, Baby. But Scout is determined to win over the other dogs, and she will, even if she does it in her own special, goofy way.
Sisters Jill Abramson and Jane O'Connor have collaborated on this warm and funny picture book based on Jill's popular New York Times blog and book, Puppy Diaries, and told in Scout's charmingly clueless voice.
