February 23: Ugly: A beaut story about one very ugly kid
Robert was born with a ‘giant tumour on his forehead, severely distorted facial features and legs that were twisted and useless’. Home for the Hoges was a bayside suburb of Brisbane. Robert’s parents, Mary and Vince, knew that his life would be difficult, but they were determined to give him a typical Australian childhood.
Robert talks about his book written for young readers. “UGLY” is the true story of how an extraordinary boy with a disability grew up to have an ordinary life, and how that became his greatest achievement of all.
