Book Review: "Marley: A Dog Like No Other"

Marley: A Dog Like No Other: A Special Adaptation for Young Readers

by John Grogan
NY:Harper Collins, 2007

I saw "Marley: A Dog Like No Other" at the library and picked it up to read to my children. I had never read the adult version of the book, but I had seen the movie "Marley and Me," so I did have a general idea of what the story would entail. All of us loved this book. It may be geared for the 8 - 12 age range, but it is just as enjoyable (and heartbreaking) for adults. All of us laughed and cried with this story about an incorrigible dog and the family that loved him. This is a must-read for all dog lovers.
