by Wolf Erlbruch

A wonderfully timely tale about the more-than-skin-depth quality of beauty - with superb illustrations, great values & a superbly told tale

The Fearsome Five is the story of 5 misfits who discover the old truth that what you look like doesn't matter as much as what you do - & that being happy is a matter of attitude

Hyena sets out to teach his friends Toad, Bat, Spider & Rat that it doesn’t matter what other people think – it is what you do that matters. Each discovers they have their own special talent by the end of the tale


Engaging picture book with a feast of colourful, comic illustrations & amusing text. The pictures dominate the double-page spread with the text set out in a white box on the left-hand page

The story is simple & elegant, with great richness in the illustrations

The book contains much of Erlbruch's personal mythology: the ever-present moon that illuminates his dusky drawings, his love of offbeat music, his attention to typography, & the careful design of the end-papers

This book supports the story’s particular humour and makes it ring so true. It celebrates non-beautiful people: I think it is funky & cool, sort of New Orleans-ish. It reminds me of Toad of Toad Hall
