Once upon a time, a mother duck hatched seven eggs. The ducklings were pretty and yellow except the last one who was big, grey and scruffy. Tired of being teased, the ugly duckling ran out of the farm yard and away across the fields! In re-telling this familiar and well-loved tale, Jonathan Langley manages to remain faithful to tradition while investing both words and pictures with wit and exuberance.
