Hans Christian Andersen: The Ugly Duckling

the ugly duckling

Retold by Stephen Mitchell

This longer retelling of the classic tale (around 30 minutes read-aloud), is recommended for its rich, warm illustrations. The creative mix of paper and fabric collage may inspire older, high-school age artists in their work.

(Jerry Pinkney also does a good job retelling and illustrating children’s classics and fables such as The Ugly Duckling.)

Ages 4-10


Available from public libraries
