A must for every child who loves their dummy and every parent who has ever tried to get rid of it! Marlon the monster loves his dummy or noo-noo as he calls it. However many tricks his mother and particularly his ferocious granny come up with to get rid of the noo-noo forever, Marlon always has several hidden away in secret places. A wonderfully enjoyable look at a familiar situation produced in a nice read-aloud edition. (4+)
