by Kamila Shamsie
On the farm, some eggs are hatching. A flock of sweet ducklings are popping out but one duckling looks different from all the others. Kamila Shamsie retells The Ugly Duckling with great empathy and a warm heart. Cast out and all alone, the 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.
