Here is one more of those delightfully funny gift books, but The Ugly Book is a book with a difference: No sentimentality here! Instead of adorable kittens or winsome pooches, The Ugly Book presents portraits of a warthog, a seriously unkempt boar, the derriere of a rhino, and several lovably funny-looking canines that will never win prizes at the Westminster dog show. A ferociously grinning alligator is presented with a caption that comments on his warm, welcoming smile. And a big, silly-looking dog is described as having ï¿½skin as smooth as a babyï¿½s bottom.ï¿½ Itï¿½s a hilarious look at the more cosmetically-challenged members of the animal kingdom, a collection of animals to make even the most ordinary-looking readers feel positively beautiful by comparison.
