The Ugly Five
Written by Julia Donaldson & illustrated by Axel Scheffler
picture book
Recommend Ages: 4-8

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.

Vulture View
Written by April Pulley Sayre & illustrated by Steve Jenkins
picture book
Recommend Ages: 5-8

Turkey vultures soar on the balmy air, looking for their next stinky feast. These birds don’t hunt―they like their food to be already dead, and their eating habits serve a very important ecological role. Vultures are part of nature’s clean-up crew.

In her signature poetic, energetic style, acclaimed nature writer April Pulley Sayre introduces young readers to the world of the turkey vulture. The gorgeous illustrations by Caldecott Honor–winning artist Steve Jenkins capture these birds in all their surprising majesty.

Vulture View is a 2008 Bank Street - Best Children’s Book of the Year.
