The Ugly Duckling

The classic Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale, The Ugly Duckling, was reimagined by Frank Loesser and performed by Danny Kaye in the classic movie in 1952. Re-recorded by children's favourite Justine Clarke, this story has been reinvented with stunning illustrations by Nathaniel Eckstrom.

With the help of the trumpet, tuba and the marimba, Justine's recording adds another level to this story's interpretation and characterisation.

This all time favourite classic explores what it's like to be different and the pain that can come with the teasing and taunting. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and true acceptance brings about the poignant final message.

Complete with CD Rom, this book will make a beautiful gift.

Highly recommended 3+ years
