The Ugly Duckling
It is a life-asserting story retold by a young Danish writer Clara Wedersøe Strunge and illustrated by the award-winning artist Evgeny Antonenkov.
The Ugly Duckling is a perfect first illustrated introduction to children and their parents to a simple truth, “Do not judge only by an appearance”.
It is a story about a little bird that was born in a duck´s nest but hatched from a swan´s egg. The story tells us that growing up, changing, and taking risks can not only change us – but can also turn us into a “beautiful swan”.
