The Ugly Duckling
Review By Christina Lewis (

When mother duck's seven eggs have hatched she realizes that one of her chicks is very different from the others. His feathers are gray, his feet are big and his beak is black, but his family loves him just the same. But the ugly duckling doesn't understand why the other animals won't accept him, so he decides to run away. After he barely escapes two dangerous situations he his found by a kind farmer who takes him home. The farmer and his children take care of him all winter. When they finally take him to the lake in the spring he sees a beautiful swan looking back at him. The ugly duckling is gone. A wonderful take on this classic story of love, acceptance and the beauty within. The warm illustrations add sparkle to the story and will make this one a favorite that kids will want to read again and again. To purchase visit (Ages 4-8)

The Ugly Duckling
"The Ugly Duckling" is a well-known story. As with all classics, there's a reason why we love to hear and read them over and over again: there's a lot of truth in them and therefore they are worth being passed on over many generations.

Jo Dunningham has lovingly re-told and illustrated "The Ugly Duckling", a traditional tale about finding one's true self. Her eye for details and her warmth are visible all throughout the book. The profits help raise funds to care for wild birds and animals that are sick or injured.

Her version is excellent for reading to preschoolers and even older children.

I think this is one of the best illustrated e-Books currently available

Reader Reviews for "The Ugly Duckling - CD with FREE colouring book"

Reviewed by Brenda Shaw 9/10/2005
The Ugly Duckling is not just for "kids." It's tale of becoming what we are truly meant to be and encouraging uniqueness in others in the workplace provides motivation for adults as well. The excellent, appropriate illustrations capture emotions other versions do not. Jo also makes the purchasing experience delightful!
