Cobus the cockroach is a beautifully illustrated story book with a very important life lesson: Cobus shows young readers that it takes two to fight and that getting on together is much more fun.
Cockroach brothers Cobus and Crawley never stop fighting in their home behind a kitchen cupboard. Their fights get very serious: they shout and kick and punch each other. And they always blame each other for starting the fights. All this fighting makes the cockroach family very unhappy. Mother Cockroach sits the two boys down after a big fight and explains that they are both hurt and both at fault - it takes two to have a fight. They finally understand that being friends is much better than fighting.
