Book - 2001
Rate this:
The ugly duckling who grew up to be a swan is the best-loved and most touching of all Hans Christian Andersen¿s stories. Here, Kevin Crossley-Holland brings a poet's magic to a picture book version that cries out to be read aloud. Meilo So¿s gorgeous paintings of farmyard animals, hunstmen, wild geese and swans are full of character and spirit and are set against wonderful scenes of the changing season. As for the ugly duckling himself, he has the pathos and charm to make this book irresistible.
