Marion is back in this award-winning family favourite! Marion's granny thinks that he's too old to still have a dummy, but Marion loves his dummy, or 'noo-noo' as he calls it. When his mum tries to throw the all the noo-noos away he hides them down the side of the armchair, in his toys, even in his wellington boots. Marion doesn't care if he gets teased about still having a dummy and he's not giving it up until he wants to! This title is the winner of the Smarties Book Prize 0-5 Years Category, the Sheffield Children's Book Award and the Nottingham Children's Book Award. This is also published this month: "All for One" by Jill Murphy.
"A brilliantly funny book with an independent-minded central character who, ultimately, makes his own decision to given up his dummy." (Practical Parenting)"
