A great version of the original tale, plus an all new storyline
17 September 2001 | by garrison1981See all my reviews

This version of the classic tale gives children all new characters and plot twist , making the voyage of the ugly duck far more intriguing and deep than in the original tale , making it a classic for children of young ages , its really funny and addictive , making it a must see for children who enjoyed the book .
