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.

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.


  • Charlotte Haskell

    Love Dawn French - narration stronger than novel unfortunately - characters unbelievable and repetitive in their monologues. Overall idea good but she doesn't quite pull it off. Keep trying Dawn still a big fan!

  • Rebecca Sutherland

    I love Dawn French but struggled to identify with the characters in this book and was disappointed. The 18 year old behaved like a child and was very annoying. I skipped lots of her bits. The mother character is closer to my age but I still didn't really understand her motivation and wanted to tell her "just grow up and stop being so bloody self-absorbed". Such a shame. Maybe it just wasn't my cup of tea.
