Ugly : Robert Hoge ; internal illustrations by Nick Stathopoulos

 

Hoge, Robert



a beaut story about one very ugly kid Summary: Robert Hoge was born with a tumour in the middle of his face, and legs that weren't much use. There wasn't another baby like him in the whole of Australia, let alone Brisbane. But the rest of his life wasn't so unusual: he had a mum and a dad, brothers and sisters, friends at school and in his street. He had childhood scrapes and days at the beach; fights with his family and trouble with his teachers. He had doctors, too: lots of doctors who, when he was still very young, removed that tumour from his face and operated on his legs, then stitched him back together. He still looked different, though. He still looked ugly. It is also the true story of how an extraordinary boy grew up to have an ordinary life, and how that became his greatest achievement of all
