The Five of Us

Written by Quentin Blake

The Five of Us Synopsis

THE FIVE OF US is a captivating tale of adventure, friendship and teamwork from one of Britain's best-loved illustrators. 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. Teeming with Quentin Blake's characteristic sense of fun and his exuberant illustrations, THE FIVE OF US is also a powerful, though subtle, reminder that the world is a better place when we focus on what we can do, rather than on what we can't.

The Five of Us Press Reviews

Blake's line here is even looser and more energetic than usual, with every element--from child to bird to bus to bystander to cheese-and-pickle sandwich--suffused with personality. A loving celebration of diversity and inclusiveness is slipped in without comment. --The Horn Book Magazine The message about talents coming in all shapes and sizes (and from all sorts of people) is loud and clear. --Publishers Weekly (02/23/2015)
