El Patito Bello

by Yanitzia Canetti

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 1-4–This reversal of “The Ugly Duckling” introduces a duckling who is beautiful from the beginning. Instead of being picked on, this handsome bird dishes out insults to others. The end result is the same as in the original: personal transformation and acceptance lead to happiness. The clever illustrations use mixed media in bright and bold colors, giving the animals real emotion and expression. The rhyming text flows lyrically and smoothly. The book is a great choice for discussions on bullying, or it can be paired with other classics rewritten with a twist.–Shannon Dye, Peoria Public Library, AZ
