The Ugly Duckling

illustrated by Jerry Pinkney, written by Hans Christian Andersen, adapted by Jerry Pinkney, and published by Morrow



Panoramic end papers set the scene for the creation of the Andersen tale, "The Ugly Duckling."

"Each full-page spread is lush with color that befits the beauty of the naturalistic setting. Pinkney imbues the animals with personality without anthropomorphizing them."
