Synopsis

'The Ugly Book' offers the perfect antidote to those sentimental gift books full of pictures of incredibly cute animals. Instead of adorable kittens cuddling up together, this unique collection puts the spotlight on the less attractive members of the animal kingdom - with hilarious results.



If you've ever had a bad hair day then this book will be perfect for you. Flicking through these pages of cross-eyed cats, gurning gorillas and badly groomed poodles will make you feel a hundred times better! Humorous text takes you through an 'ugly duckling' transformation until, by the end of the book, it has raised a smile and you feel quite beautiful in comparison.



Compare ugly warthogs, much maligned vultures, bare baboons and grumpy-looking bulldogs and read the story of their adventures as you recognise and empathise with the familiar human-like characteristics of their expressions. For those in need of an ego boost, take a trip through these pages - from the saggy skin of the Shar Pei to the enormous behind of the hippo, you will feel stunning in comparison.

He's vented his fury in the Ivor Grump books, including The Grumpy Drivers' Handbook and The Grumpy Golfers' Handbook, and some sports nostalgia books under the alias of Captain William Featherstone-Dawes.However the most fun he's had was writing the captions for 101 Sports Not To Try.
