A hilarious picture book from Nick Butterworth, the highly-regarded, prize-winning, creator of Percy the Park Keeper.
In a fantastical land where even warthogs are beautiful, the peace is shattered one day by the deafening thud of something very large nearby. Is it a monster? None of the animals feels brave enough to find out, but they know of an `Ugly Beast' who might be able to help. And when they find him, the animals are in for a truly monstrous surprise.
