We published a great selection of books by Julia Donaldson in 2017 – including a new Ladybird adventure and a crime-busting dog.


The Ugly Five

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. They might be gangly, warty, bumpy, bristly, spotty and stinky – but they’re perfect just the way they are! This comical picture book has a lovely message about loving each other despite our appearances.
