In many modern societies, a slim figure is considered the desirable ideal of beauty. People who do not live up to these expectations can easily become victims of unfair treatment or even of psychological harassment, with the result that they suffer mental stress. Fatulous is a pop-up book which deals with those problems and which is intended to cause the reader to reflect on them. The protagonist of the story is faced with various situations in which she can find self-confidence, respect and even herself. The story is visualised by powerful illustrations, rich in colour.
