Jill Murphy by Jill Murphy.
Marlon's granny thinks he is much, too old for a pacifier. Its a noo-noo, Marlon informs her. And he has no intention of giving it up. Not even when the other little monsters call him a big baby. Nothing and no one can make Marlon give up his noo-noo until Marlon decides that the time is right. Every child who feels the pang of pacifiers - or other props of babyhood - left behind will relish this wry tale.

My family love Jill Murphy's books - The Last Noo-Noo is the tale of a family trying to separate a child from his beloved dummy. Parents reading it will almost certainly know an opinionated granny such as the one in this book. We have recently had to purchase another copy to give as a gift because my teenage sons refused to allow me to give their childhood copy away.

Peace at Last was a favourite story in my classroom when I started teaching The simple, repetitive text in Peace at Last makes it a great book for beginner readers
Peace at Last was a favourite story in my classroom when I started teaching. The story of Jill Murphy’s three bears takes a humorous look at not being able to sleep, a theme that is familiar to children and adults. The Story: Mr Bear, Mrs Bear and Baby Bear go to bed. Mrs Bear falls asleep but Mr Bear doesn’t. The simple, repetitive text in Peace at Last makes it a great book for beginner readers. Each double page spread has the same layout, text on the left and a large illustration on the right. I love the smaller black and white line drawings above the text which show extras that aren’t mentioned in the story, for example Mr Bear having a late night snack in the kitchen.
