The Ugly Ducking

Review

The Ugly Ducking

We've probably all heard the story of the ugly misfit duckling who has trouble finding out where he belongs. The little bird endures teasing and taunting until the day he finally grows into his true identity: a beautiful swan. Jerry Pinkney's graceful watercolor paintings bring a sunny countryside world --- and a lovable character --- to life.
