The Last Noo-Noo

Written by: Jill Murphy

First line: Marlon sat on the floor watching TV.

Why you should read this book: A monster who is old enough to walk around town by himself still likes to suck a pacifier sometimes, and his granny monster thinks he should stop. The family's efforts to deprive Marlon of his noo-noos fails due to the fact that Marlon has enough agency to hoard his precious pacifiers. Eventually, Marlon decides to give up noo-noos of his own accord, but he still has a contingency plan in case he changes his mind.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't want to give up cigarettes, gum-chewing, or whatever other grown-up oral fixation you've acquired.
