The Ugly Duckling

The Ugly Duckling is part of the Happily Ever After series, published by New Frontier.

Alex Field has retold this classic tale of the ugly duckling and his search for his place in the world. After sadly realising his mother is disappointed in him and he is not as pretty as the other ducklings, the little ugly duckling ventures into the wider world and tries to fit in. His attempts at belonging do not go well until he comes across some baby swans and their graceful mother who explains that he too will become a beautiful swan.

This is a lovely story for families everywhere, whatever their size, shape or idiosyncrasies may be.
