Hey kids! Thorndyke here. After watching the library happenings for over 15 years, I’m glad they’ve finally given me a voice. ‘Cause nobody knows more about this library than me, except for maybe Miss Kristen and Mrs. Havenstein-Coughlin, but they go home at night. I tell you, I have the best life—sitting by the birthday wall, watching the kids come for storytime and summer reading. And the librarians are some of my best friends! They have a pretty fun job. So next time you’re at the library, stop by and wave hello. I’ll be looking for you!Bear Hugs!
Marley, the lovable Labrador who inspired a best-selling book and a hit movie, now comes to us in a format for beginning readers.

If you love dogs, you'll definitely love reading about Marley's crazy adventures.
