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+)


The Last Noo-Noo by Jill Murphy

A compact picture book designed to encourage reading. Marlon the monster loves his dummies. He calls them his "noo-noos". Marlon's granny says he's too old for a dummy and all the other monsters tease him about it too. But Marlon isn't going to give up his noo-noo until he wants to!
