View all copies of this ISBN edition:

One glorious spring morning, a mother duck watches her ducklings hatch. Each one is small and pretty, exactly what a duckling should be – except for one very large and very ugly duckling. The other animals cast him out of the farmyard and the ugly duckling sets off on a lonely, hard journey to find somewhere he will fit in. When he's about to give up, he makes a surprising discovery and realizes that being different isn't such a bad thing after all!
