Listener Opinions

    " This is an overall good book for elementary aged students. It has a great storyline that students can follow and has a strong message behind it that students can relate to through the animal characters. "

    " Everyone knows the story of the ugly duckling right? This retold story adds some depth and lovely pictures to illustrate the story. As was mentioned in my Children's Lit class it's sad that you have to be beautiful to feel of worth. However, the way I interpreted the book is that to feel accepted and loved you have to feel beautiful and to me the difference is that you can feel beautiful and be beautiful when perhaps the outside world wouldn't vote you as beautiful. "

    " This is the classic story that every child should be exposed to! People can be really cruel these days and the ugly duckling reminds us to look past people's appearances. The illustrations are memorizing and intricate. A beautiful book all around! "

    " A really wordy version and I didn't really like the illustrations. The text just didn't hold my interest. "

    " The original story is much darker than the innumerable, watered-down cutesy versions. The illustrations in the e-book version looked like free clipart and left much to be desired. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandie | 8/24/2013

    " The one I had when I was little looked most like this one, even though this edition was published far past when I read the story!!! "

    " not my kind of book "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paula | 12/5/2012

    " An ugly duckling spends an unhappy year ostracized by the other animals before he grows into a beautiful swan. "

    " This is another book I picked up while at a yard sale. I think I must have read it as a child, as part of a compilation of Hans Christian Andersen stories. This is a nice retelling, with simple wood carving pictures accompanying it. "

    " collage and water color--unusual collage style "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirei | 12/18/2008

    " Typical story of a duckling who is ostracized because he is ugly, but then discovers he is a swan. The text is easy to read for children. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karla | 10/24/2008

    " I had never read this version of the story and I liked it. I enjoyed some of the turns of phrase particularly! I liked the art. "
