About The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Ugly Animals by Sami Bayly

Marvel as you enter the fascinating hidden world of ugly animals in this encyclopedia of the animal kingdom's most unusual and beauty-challenged species. It's time for ugly animals to shine!

With more than sixty ugly animals to explore, this compendium of the unusual celebrates the beauty in 'ugliness'. Children and adults alike will pore over the breathtaking scientific illustrations of unusual animals, debating their relative ugliness and merits, learning about science and nature along the way.

Featuring illustrations and facts about the thorniest species the animal kingdom has to offer, from the naked mole-rat to the goblin shark, aye-aye, sphinx cat, blobfish and many more 'ugly' beauties.

This gorgeous hardcover book is illustrated in exquisite detail by exciting new Australian talent, Sami Bayly.
