Looking for some children’s books?

Right now you can download The Ugly Duckling (Illustrated) for FREE to your Kindle, PC or Smart Phone.

Grade 1-5–Bell’s able and elegant translation of this classic tale omits nothing: the ugly duckling, rejected by his siblings and mother, runs away. He journeys to the marshes where he meets wild ducks and geese and watches as they are slaughtered by hunters, is told by a cat and hen that he does not possess the right talents, and is later rescued by a farmer from freezing fast in a pond. Eventually, he realizes his true identity and is happy with himself but modest because “a good heart never shows pride.” Ingpen’s bold impressionistic paintings fill the spreads and render the birds with pleasing angularity.

Remember this is Amazon- the price can change at any moment!
