The Ugly Five (Paperback with audio CD)
The Ugly Five, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler’s bestselling picture book, is now available accompanied by an audio CD, featuring the story performed by award-winning actress, Imelda Staunton. 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. Children can listen to the full story with music, play The Ugly Five Listening Game and sing along to the brand new song, which was written by Julia Donaldson especially for this CD.
