Axel Scheffler is a best-selling, award-winning illustrator of many of the world’s favourite picture books. His books have been published in many languages and his work has been exhibited all around the world, but he is perhaps best-known for his collaborations with Julia Donaldson, including the modern classic The Gruffalo.
“It’s important that we protect and conserve our natural world. On safari, Julia Donaldson heard about the so-called ‘Ugly Five’ and made them the heroes of our new book that celebrates the wildlife of South Africa. On my rhino there’s a wildebeest, warthog, spotted hyena, marabou stork and lappet-faced vulture. Can you also spot an African starling, dung beetle, elephant shrew, rhinoceros beetle and lizard?”
