Waterstones Says

The artistry and rhyming skill behind The Gruffalo brings a new story to life about learning to rejoice in how wonderful you are. Meet The Ugly Five, who each prove that beauty is all on the inside.

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.

It’s impossible to imagine a time before every child’s bookcase contained a sticky-finger-marked, lovingly well-read copy of The Gruffalo, so great has been the impact of former Children’s Laureate, author, poet and song-writer Julia Donaldson.

Her extraordinary imagination has produced classics such as Stick Man and Room on the Broom amongst many others, making her undoubtedly the most popular author for very young children writing today.

“Charming with an important message”

Once again, Julian Donaldson and Axel Scheffler have created another fantastic story book full of charming rhymes and gorgeous, gentle illustrations.

Unlike some of her other stories this is a bit more testing in... More

“A clunky rhyme and sad message”

I strongly dislike this book. The message throughout is that physical appearance is all that matters, ‘redeamed’ only at the end because the children of the characters tell them they are lovely because of everything... More

“Not a nice book for children ”

I do not think that we should be teaching our children about being ugly. The whole book is about being ugly, I don’t think this is a nice message to read to your children. Very disappointing book from Julia Donaldson,... More
