Description

A brilliantly funny book about a monster attached to his dummy, from the bestselling author-illustrator of Five Minutes' Peace and Peace at Last.

With wit, humour and a keen feel for the dynamics of family life, the creator of Five Minutes' Peace and A Quiet Night In captures a familiar dilemma in this multiple award-winning book - the dilemma of how to help a little one let go of their dummy! Marlon's granny thinks that he's much too old for a dummy. "It's a noo-noo," Marlon informs her. And he has no intention of giving it up. Not even when his mum throws it in the bin. Not even when the other monsters call him a big baby. Nothing and no one can make Marlon give up his noo-noo until Marlon decides that the time is right...
