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–and totally irresistible!
Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s wonderfully warm, funny picture book is a glorious celebration of the real-life ‘Ugly Five’ animals in Africa. With its perfect rhyme and superb illustrations, it’s a comic masterpiece that is a joy to read aloud.
