The Five of Us

by Quentin Blake
The Five of Us

item code: 15450

This brand new story from Quentin Blake is beautifully illustrated throughout in his inimitable style and is a celebration of diversity.

The Five of Us is a captivating tale of adventure, friendship and teamwork. 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.

Quentin Blake taught for many years at the Royal College of Art, where he was head of the Illustration Department from 1978 to 1986. His collaborations with writers such as Russell Hoban and Roald Dahl, as well as his own creations, such as Mister Magnolia, have established his reputation as one of the world’s leading illustrators and an inspiration for artists everywhere.
