In her debut children’s book, Rebecca Solnit updates a classic fairy tale with a fresh, feminist take and new plot twists that will inspire young readers to change the world.

Duckling by Kamila Shamsie

A duck unlike other ducks. A raincloud-duck, with the heart of a lion, who struck out into the world on her own…

Kamila Shamsie retells The Ugly Duckling with great empathy and a warm heart. Cast out and all alone, the odd duckling will need all her bravery and curiosity to survive. Her journey is a search for belonging, but what she finds is the right to be different.
