Description

The funny and joyful picture book from the number one
bestselling author and illustrator of The Gruffalo, Stick Man
and Zog.


'Morning had dawned on the African plain.

The lion lay grooming his glorious mane.

The kudu looked cool and the rhino looked fine.

The bright pink flamingos looked simply divine.

The zebra looked graceful; the leopard look great.
Oh what a picture of beauty - but wait!'




Who's that singing on the savannah?


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, this gorgeous
picture book is a celebration of animals who are often rather
unloved.






Hardcover format comes with a protective dust jacket to make
this a special gift for a lifetime
