Product Description:

A well-loved Hans Christian Andersen tale embedded into glorious illustrations celebrating the wonders of nature. Once through this oversized (9.5 x 11.5) book will never be enough. You and your children (grandchildren?) will get lost in the details of a frog snatching a dragonfly; ducklings and mamas or a fisherman and his catch. A Caldecott Honor Book. 36 pgs, hc with jacket. ~ Janice

Publisher Description:

For over one hundred years The Ugly Duckling has been a childhood favorite, and Jerry Pinkney's spectacular new adaptation brings it triumphantly to new generations of readers. With keen emotion and fresh vision, the acclaimed artist captures the essence of the tale's timeless appeal: The journey of the awkward little bird -- marching bravely through hecklers, hunters, and cruel seasons -- is an unforgettable survival story; this blooming into a graceful swan is a reminder of the patience often necessary to discover true happiness. Splendid watercolors set in the lush countryside bring drama to life.

This book has the most beautiful illustrations I've ever seen in a children's book. I bought it for my grandchildren and I'm buying it for a cousin's little girl.
