This fiction picture storybook is written about a blobfish voted first in the 2015 Ugliest Fish Contest. I named her Uglia and she lives in the beautiful deep blue-green waters of the continental reefs among colorful seagrasses, corals, and plants. The tender story illustrates to children that love and one's heart can overcome many challenges of growing up. Uglia is a physically challenged fish that for many is very beautiful. By showing her affection, adaptability, generosity, and respect Uglia swims through smooth waters to spread love and joy among her new friends.

Uglia is (Not Ugly)
A beautiful story that needs to be told to both children and adults, especially in today’s world of superficiality and falsehoods. The enviornmental destruction of the Australian Barrier Reef is the perfect place to tell a story about the needs to love all thing animate, inanimate, or whether it is fish, coral or one another. Wonderful and colorful illustrations.
Throughout this book, the reader is engaged not only by the message of love towards others, but by the beautifully way it has been illustrated. Take time on each page to explore the coral reef which brings me to the next reason I appreciated this book. This book is dedicated to protecting one of our valuable resources, the coral reef.
Ugly is (Not) Ugly
What a charming book! All about acceptance, kindness and love, with beautiful illustrations collage-style and animation as well. Uglia and other characters come alive through the artist’s work and text. A great read for all ages. Loved it!
