Marlon's granny thinks it's high time Marlon gives up his pacificer. "It's a noo-noo", Marlon informs her--and he has no intention of giving it up. Nothing and no one can make Marlon give up his noo-noo until Marlon decides to give up his noo-noo! With keen humor and a sure instinct for the dynamics of family life, Murphy captures a common childhood dilemma. Full color.
