Meet the animals!

Say a quick “hello!” to three of the book’s “ugly” critters…

Amazon river dolphin

Like their name suggests, these dolphins are found in the Amazon River and Orinoco River in South America. They’re known for being very inquisitive and friendly, even playing with local kids in the water!

Aye-aye

Found across the coasts of Madagascar, these wide-eyed primates have a piercing gaze…and enormous ears! Their name is thought to come from the sound they make when startled – “hai-hai”!

Helmeted Hornbill

These striking birds of Southeast Asia are one the largest species of hornbills, reaching up to 120cm tall! When fighting, helmeted hornbills often fly directly into one another and clash heads together!
