Angie, Ollie, Simona, Mario and Eric are five fantastic friends, each of whom has an unusual ability. Disaster strikes on a day out to the countryside but, working together and combining their individual powers, the Fantastic Five save the day.
The Five of Us is a captivating tale of adventure, friendship and teamwork from one of Britain's best-loved illustrators.
Teeming with Quentin Blake's characteristic sense of fun and his exuberant illustrations, The Five of Us is a powerful, though subtle, reminder that the world is a better place when we can focus on what we can do, rather than what we can't.
'An inspirational book with a lovely message. Quentin has a talent for storytelling and has crafted a tale that is moving, nail-biting and incredibly uplifting' - Junior Magazine
'[The Five of Us] perfectly captur[es] the essence of what makes kids so imaginative, brilliant and brave whatever their background or ability' - Read it Daddy
