This novelty flap book tells the beloved story of the ugly duckling, who is different than all the other ducks, but grows up to be a beautiful swan. Mr. and Mrs. Duck are appalled by their strange-looking new offspring and they send him off to find his real parents. Toddlers and young children will love helping Ugly Duckling look behind all the flaps to meet the various countryside animals who might be his mummy. There's a very near miss with a naughty fox before he meets the swans and sails merrily off down the river with his real family.
