Arresting contemporary art style, beautifully packaged in an upmarket format with a bright pink pantone fifth colour throughout.

Five misfits - one holey, one folded up like an envelope, one floppy and boneless, one topsey-turvey, and one that can only be described as a total catastrophe - are perfectly content living in their ramshackle house until one day Mr Perfect, replete with bright pink knickerbockers and fluorescent hair, arrives to inform the happy-go-lucky crew that their lives are "completely worthless". Initially dejected and depressed, each character uses their own special talent to turn the criticism on its head. This quirky and allegorical picture book is filled with humorous and poignant moments, brought to life beautiful contemporary artwork from one of Europe's best-loved talents.
