I really found this book rather sad and depressing. I felt so sorry for that little duckling who was always getting bit and pecked at, just because he was "ugly." I thought that the other animals treatment of him was appalling. And I was really dismayed when he ran away and still couldn't find people who would accept him. Definitely not a book I'm recommending anytime soon, it was just not happy enough for my taste in children's books.
