The little grey duckling looks nothing like the others. His feathers are scruffy and his feet are too big. He is teased and tormented from dawn til dusk, and no one ever asks him to play. What will become of him? And will he ever learn to love himself? The Ugly Duckling is one of Hans Christian Andersen's best-loved and most well-known fairy tales. With luminous illustrations by picture-book favourite Jonathan Bentley, this fresh retelling of Andersen's timeless classic belongs on every child's bookshelf.
