|A mother duck hatches a brood of ducklings. All are sweet little yellow babies -- all but one, who is very large, very gray, and very ugly. The poor ugly duckling is teased and tormented by everyone he meets, even his own mother, brothers, and sisters. Driven from his home in the barnyard, the unhappy duckling wanders the world alone, suffering hardships, cruelty, and ridicule wherever he goes. This exquisite tale of rejection and redemption has been a favorite with children since its first publication in 1845. The hapless duck's plight, and his ultimate triumph, is especially relevant in today's image-conscious world.|

I raise swans and collect this book not to mention that
my business name is "the ugly duckling" and why the hell do
i need to put in 100 characters if I have already said it all.
Stupid and redundant philosophy! :(
This is a truly exceptional version of this story! The art work is just incredible! I buy many classic tales to read to my pre-school class. This book is one of our real treasures!
One of my favorite stories for children with cute illustrations for the kids. Makes a great moral lesson (which SHOULD be made to the kids and NOT just to read it).
