Book Review: Bad Dog Marley

My review from Amazon:

This is one of the first e-books my six-year-old daughter read. She has listened to it numerous times and can recite all the words by heart.

The story itself is a sweet one regarding a dog that despite wanting nothing but to do the best thing possible, always manages to get into trouble with his human family. He nearly manages to get himself ousted completely when he finally does something perceived as good by his family.

I was disappointed with the stereo-typically sexist gender roles and the fact that the family was going to give up the dog without considering other alternatives, such as training, but it is a very short and simple children’s story, and my daughter enjoys it, so four stars!
