Author(s): Quentin Blake
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 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.
