Foyles Notes

A charming, rhyming picture book that immerses the reader in an African Safari landscape. Meet the "Ugly Five," the animals widely considered to be the ugliest in all of the African continent. But depending on who's looking, maybe they're not so ugly after all? Donaldson & Scheffler nail it once again in this delightful story that teaches that there's strength in companionship and beauty is about more than just your appearance. I especially loved the detailed drawings and the chance to spot different safari animals in each illustration.

Synopsis

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.
