What's The Ugly Five About

Publisher Summary

A charming new picture book from the bestselling creators of The Gruffalo and Room on the Broom!

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.
