My book is called The Ugly Duckling.

Itís about a very ugly duckling who was very sad when he was small because nobody loved him. But when he grown up he became a beautiful swan.

My favourite part of the book was when the swans said, 'Look in the water' The pictures are beautiful and help to understand the book. My favourite character is the ugly duckling because he was very sad but my favourite part is when he becomes beautiful and is very happy.

This is a lovely story for children of all ages. It teaches us that it's ok to be different.
