Publisher Description:

A retelling of 'The Ugly Duckling' from A Fairy Tale Revolution, a series designed to remix and revive our favourite stories.

Kamila Shamsie retells ‘The Ugly Duckling’. A Fairy Tale Revolution is here to remix and revive our favourite stories.

‘A duck unlike other ducks. A raincloud-duck, with the heart of a lion, who struck out into the world on her own…’

On the farm, some eggs are hatching. A flock of sweet ducklings are popping out. But one duckling looks different from all the others…

Cast out and all alone, this odd duckling will need all her bravery and curiosity to survive. Her journey is a search for belonging, but what she finds is the right to be different.
