Ugly-Cute: What Misunderstood Animals Can Teach Us About Life

by Jennifer McCartney Author

Ugly-Cute celebrates the inner beauty of animals that are often considered to be ugly. Featuring 17 different animals, from the pink fairy armadillo to the hairless cat, from the truly horrendous star-nosed mole to the derpy sunbear, each animal is described in detail, and author Jennifer McCartney discusses the ways in which these animals are misunderstood and underappreciated. We as a culture focus too much on perfection, and thus it's all too easy to overlook the beauty of animals that are not conventionally attractive. Remember: even for animals, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes! Even the derpy ones.
