What other readers are saying about this title:
Avatar for Emily Lloyd Emily Lloyd said:
A little long--though I haven't fouind a shorter retelling--but the language is nice and the illustrations are outstanding. In one spot, Isadora reserves a full two-page spread for a tiny bit of text--"At night the ugly duckling would cry himself to sleep"--beautifully capturing the loneliness, isolation, and sadness of the "duckling" who has far too much space to himself.
