Trick or Treat, Marley!

John Grogan, illus. by Richard Cowdrey. Harper, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-06-185755-3

Marley’s family is hosting a Halloween party, which means lots of opportunities for the puppy to get into trouble in this nostalgic addition to Grogan’s bestselling series. Getting his head stuck in a pumpkin is just the beginning: Marley bobs for apples, steals the tail on the donkey, and gobbles all of the candy. Though there’s little subtlety in the story or art, Marley’s shenan­igans should continue to charm dog-lovers. Ages 3–8. (Aug.)
