A pair of storybooks based on The Hoobs were published in 2002 by Egmont Books. The 24-page illustrated storybooks were written by Sue Mongredien. The books explored the topic of combs and keys - each book came with a "free gift" attached to the cover, a comb and a key ring respectively.
“These two storybooks are a must-have for any Hoobs fan. Not only is there a fantastic story, illustrated with full colour and a funky design, but best of all a Free Gift attached to the front cover; a comb and a key ring - all the more reason to collect them both.”
