Book Review #387
The Ugly Duckling by Jerry Pinkney
Rating: zero stars (out of four)

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.
