Duck! $19.95 ex GST
$21.95 inc GST
Ugly is no ordinary duck – in fact he might not even be a duck at all. An embarrassment to his brothers and sisters, Ugly eats snails, speaks funny and looks even funnier. Fed up with being the butt of all the pond jokes, he strikes out on his own…

Set on Hampstead Heath, Philip Osment's modern re-imagining of Hans Christian Andersen's tale The Ugly Duckling is a wild adventure for anyone who wants to stand out from the crowd.
