The Ugly Five
Read by Imelda Staunton
Yoto Says: These beastly characters are happy being hideous, and they’re here to remind us all that it’s what’s on the inside that counts!
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, this audio version of 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.
Includes the full story with music, play The Ugly Five Listening Game and a brand new Ugly Five song.
