'We're the ugly five, we're the ugly five. Everyone flees when they see us arrive. '
Who's this funny-looking bunch of animals? They're gangly, warty, bumpy, bristly, spotty, stinky--people call them the Ugly Five ... but are they really?
Meet the latest classic picture book characters from UK's no.1 picture book pair Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. The story stars Wildebeest, Warthog, Spotted Hyena, Lappet-Faced Vulture and Marabou Stork, who rejoice in their ugliness, while their babies tell them they are perfect just the way they are.
With its rollicking rhyme, The Ugly Five is a joy to read aloud, and readers will be enchanted by its humorous illustrations. Yet another jolly read by two of our favourite picturebook superstars!
