Overview

This time-honored tale, which adults will remember as a Little Golden Book first published in 1952, takes the reader on a nostalgic trip back to the golden age of children's books. Artist Don MacLaughlin gained inspiration for his enchanting "retro" illustrations from The Walt Disney Studios' 1939 Silly Symphony cartoon. Based on a story by Hans Christian Andersen, the cartoon was the last Silly Symphony produced by the studio, and was honored with an Academy Award. The book tells the story of a "duckling" who simply wants to belong but is shunned by his duck family because he's different. Down but not out, the little guy sets out in search of a family that will love and accept him. Eventually, he is greeted by the "honk, honk, honk" of his brothers and sisters, who, along with their beautiful snow-white swan mother, welcome him home.

Because of his ugly and awkward appearance, a duckling is ostracized by other animals.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The little Golden Book, The Ugly Duckling was first published in 1952, and this Disney edition takes the reader back to that golden age. The illustrations were inspired by Disney's 1939 "Silly Symphony" cartoon, and the "retro" illustrations are as inspirational today as they were 50 years ago. The classic story of the ugly duckling instills the desire to accept everyone for who they are. The story is of a duckling who wants to belong but is shunned by everyone he encounters. Finally the duckling finds his mother, the beautiful swan, who welcomes him home. The words and the pictures will entrance young and old alike. 2001 (orig. 1952), Welcome Enterprises, $14.99. Ages 3 to 8. Reviewer: Nicole Peterson
