Description

It's summer in the Uglyverse, and Wage and Babo’s air conditioner has broken down, so they head to Ox and Wedgehead’s Air Conditioner Emporium, where the only cooling mechanism they can afford is an oldfashioned ice-box. They bring it home, and soon realize they are in for more of a stew than they bargained for when they find little Ice-Bat living inside! Since everything he touches turns to ice, Wage and Babo’s apartment cools off in no time. But when word gets out, greedy Ox and Wedgehead can’t believe they sold Ice-Bat for only five dollars. They decide they want him for the Air Conditioner Emporium.




About the Author

David Horvath and Sun-Min Kim maintained a long-distance relationship by writing each other letters, in which David began drawing little monster-like creatures. Sun-Min surprised David by sewing a plush version of one of his characters as a Christmas gift, and the Uglydolls were born!
