From the bestselling author and illustrator duo of The
Gruffalo!
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 gorgeous 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.

From the ceators of The Gruffalo, Stick Man and ZOG,
which have all been made into animated films
shown on BBC1
Zog and the Flying Doctors animation will screen
on BBC1 in December 2020.
