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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not so Marvellous For quite some time it didn’t feel as if the story was going anywhere and parts were quite long winded, with excessive rambling and question marks. Although it did keep my attention and I like this genre, the characters weren't likable and I just didn't enjoy the story.
