A Tiny Bit Marvellous is comedian Dawn French's hilarious pageturner. 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. Praise for A Tiny Bit Marvellous: "Funny, really enjoyable, highly recommended. A wonderful writer - witty, wise, poignant". (Wendy Holden). "A fantastic slam-dunk pageturner. Funny, enriching ...page after page I laughed out loud". (Mail on Sunday). "Beautifully observed. Makes you laugh on every page". (The Times). "A brilliantly observed, very funny novel of family life". (Woman and Home). Dawn French has been making people laugh for thirty years. On purpose. As a writer, comedian and actor, she has appeared in some of this country's most long running, cherished and celebrated shows, including French and Saunders, The Comic Strip Presents..., Murder Most Horrid, The Vicar of Dibley, Jam and Jerusalem, Lark Rise to Candleford, and more recently, Roger and Val Have Just Got In. Her bestselling memoir, Dear Fatty, was published to critical acclaim in 2008. Her first novel, A Tiny Bit Marvellous, was also a great success, going straight to No.1. Dawn's second novel, Oh Dear Silvia, is out now.
