Synopsis

The Ugly Duckling Dinosaur A Prehistoric Tale by Cheryl Bardoe, Doug Kennedy

Once upon a time, seven tiny duck beaks pecked their way out of their eggs, but the eighth egg was a little bit different ...he wasn't a duck at all, but a dinosaur! Everyone notices how different he is. He's got no waddle! His teeth are too big! He's a monster. Feeling ugly and like an outcast, the dinosaur duckling leaves his family and ventures out on his own. Over time he grows even bigger, but still has trouble finding his rightful home until one day he wanders upon other dinosaurs that look just like him. Turns out he's a T-Rex! A humorous and loving take on The Ugly Duckling that also features dinosaur information.
