Description

The funny and joyful picture book from the number one
bestselling author and illustrator of The Gruffalo, Stick Man
and Zog.

‘Morning had dawned on the African plain.

The lion lay grooming his glorious mane.

The kudu looked cool and the rhino looked fine.

The bright pink flamingos looked simply divine.

The zebra looked graceful; the leopard look great.
Oh what a picture of beauty – but wait!’

Who’s that singing on the savannah?

The wildebeest, warthog, vulture, hyena and marabou stork swagger
proudly across the savannah, rejoicing in their ugliness – and
delighting their babies, who think they’re perfect just the way
they are.

Inspired by the real-life Ugly Five safari animals, this gorgeous
picture book is a celebration of animals who are often rather
unloved.

Shiny foil highlights on the cover makes this a special gift
for toddlers

A funny and comical picture book from the UK’s number one picture
book author and illustrator

Perfect read-aloud rhyming text and stunning pictures on every
page with lots of details to spot

Full of fabulous animals!

Celebrates being yourself, family and friendship

From the creators of The Gruffalo, Stick Man and Zog,
which have all been made into animated films

Superworm is on BBC One at Christmas with voice
artists including Oscar-winner Olivia Colman (narrator), Matt
Smith (Superworm) and Rob Brydon (Crow)

New for September 2022 – look out for The Baddies,
the wickedly funny new picture book by Julia Donaldson
and Axel Scheffler.
