Summary: For more than 100 years The Ugly Duckling has been a childhood favorite, and Jerry Pinkney's spectacular new adaptation brings it triumphantly to new generations of readers. With keen emotion and fresh vision, the acclaimed artist captures the essence of the tale's timeless appeal: The journey of the awkward little bird - marching bravely through hecklers, hunters, and cruel seasons - is an unforgettable survival story; this blooming into a graceful swan is a reminder of the patience often necessary to discover true happiness. Splendid watercolors set in the lush countryside bring drama to life.

I liked this book because it really resembled me and it taught me a valuable message: to be happy for looking so good and not looking like the ugly duckling. That poor duck!

I didn't think the ugly duckling was ugly. He was just different. I thought he was cute.
