A Tiny Bit Marvellous

A Tiny Bit Marvellous

by Dawn French, PB $32.95

World renown comedienne Dawn French has finally blessed us with a fictional novel and it most certainly does not disappoint!!!

After the success of her autobiography, ‘Dear Fatty’, French has put together a wonderfully witty and warm book about the Battle family and the struggles that they and no doubt every family face on a daily basis.

It is told mainly from the viewpoint’s of the mother, daughter and son but the father, grandma and dog are also important. Although the mother (Mo) is a child psychologist, she cannot seem to have so much as a conversation with her daughter (Dora) without it turning into a yelling match…sound familiar?

‘A Tiny Bit Marvellous’ is heart warming and honest and French’s distinctive comedic voice shines through.  She interviewed mother/daughter combinations to get an in depth idea of the complex family relationships and obviously uses some of her own experiences as a mum.

Whether you are familiar with Dawn French or not, her novel makes a lovely summer read and you will be crossing your fingers for another!!!
