The Ugly FiveAuthor: Julia Donaldson
Illustrator: Axel Scheffler
Another wonderful story from the dynamic duo of Julia and Axel!
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 plains, 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 which Julia saw on safari in Africa, Julia and Axel’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.
