Five Little Fiends is certainly different and probably unique in its presentation of an important concept: that of sharing, something that children of all ages need to discuss and understand. The five little fiends in question live inside statues and look out at the world. They each choose a part of it, their favourite individual part, and take them home, back to their statues to look at whenever they choose. The sun, the moon, the land, the sky and the sea are all removed and stowed away in the statues. Read the story and find out what happens, when each little fiend realises the global impact of his or her combined selfishness. Most of the text is straightforward, though some vocabulary may require explanation, and the format and layout of the illustrations is simple and uncluttered, all adding emphasis to the overlying theme of sharing. The book will be accessible to quite a large age range of children, because it highlights a concept that needs to be accompanied by discussion.
