Format: Hardcover
This is one of the fairy tale stories every parent should have in their bookshelves for their kids to enjoy and read while they are growing up, that actually have moral values for the kids to learn. I've enjoyed reading this when I was a kid and now when I have my own kids, I would definitely make sure they read this as one of their booklist.

This book is about a little duck who isn't like any of its brothers and sisters who are yellow and beautiful, and everybody calls it the "Ugly Duckling". It is ostracized by everybody it knows and due to this he runs away from home, growing up alone and have several little adventures of it's own, and one time wishing it is as beautiful as a swan.

I have treasured this book since I was a child and it has always been a part of my very fond memories. I was thrilled to see this book for sale after all these (40+?) years and I am so excited to be able to impart the innocent and meaningful life lessons that these timeless quality books have unto my grandchildren. I'm sure they will love this book as much as I did; and if not, I am glad to have it back just for a quick trip back to those good ole days, even if it's only for five minutes. I purchased this book as a used seventies edition and it looks like it's been loved and smells like a good book should. The condition was exactly as described and I would highly recommend this seller.
