A Tiny Bit Marvellous




A Tiny Bit Marvellous by Dawn French is the story of a modern family, all living in their own separate bubbles, lurching towards meltdown.

Dawn French's number one bestelling novel A Tiny Bit Marvellous is a hilarious pageturner that will have you gripped from the first page.

Everyone hates the perfect family.
So you'll love the Battles.
Meet Mo Battle, about to turn 50 and mum to two helpless, hormonal teenagers. There's 17-year-old daughter Dora who blames Mo for, like, EVERYTHING and Peter who believes he's quite simply as darling and marvellous as his hero Oscar Wilde. Somewhere, keeping quiet, is Dad . . . who's just, well... Dad.
However, Mo is having a crisis. She's about to do something unusually wild and selfish, which will leave the entire family teetering on the edge of a precipice. Will the family fall? Or will they, when it really matters, be there for each other?
A Tiny Bit Marvellous is the number one bestselling novel from one of Britain's favourite comic writers.
