The Ugly Five
Axel Scheffler, Julia Donaldson
Who’s that singing on the savannah? It’s the top-five ugly animals
in Africa! 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, Julia Donaldson
and Axel Scheffler’s brand-new picture book is a jubilant celebration
of animals who are often rather unloved. The funny, heart-warming
rhyme is a joy to read aloud, while bold, comical illustrations
bring the savannah spectacularly to life.
