A Monster and His Noo Noo


Written and Illustrated by Jill Murphy
Candlewick Press, 1995 
Pages: 32
Ages: 0 to 5

Two of my granddaughters love their sothers so picking up this book for story time was a no brainer.

As you may already know, I am drawn to brightly illustrated books. The pictures are absolutely wonderful and compliment the written words. My little darlings and I have read this book dozens of times.


"Marlon's granny thinks it's high time Marlon gives up his pacificer. "It's a noo-noo", Marlon informs her--and he has no intention of giving it up. Nothing and no one can make Marlon give up his noo-noo until Marlon decides to give up his noo-noo! With keen humor and a sure instinct for the dynamics of family life, Murphy captures a common childhood dilemma.'

Marlon's Noo-Noo Tree  A wonderful end to a wonderful story.

Please feel free to leave your comments. I would love to hear from you. What did you think of this book?

While researching on the internet, I found out that Jill Murphy has many more books. I would like to read PEACE AT LAST and another book featuring Marlon called ALLFOR ONE.

Apparantly, "Jill Murphy (born 5 July 1949) is an English children's author, best known for The Worst Witch series and the Large Family picture books. She has been described as "one of the most engaging writers and illustrators for children in the land".
