Summary

Summary

There once was an ugly duckling... who was actually a baby dinosaur! A dino egg tumbled through a time vortex into a duck nest, but it's clear the hatchling Rex doesn't fit in with his duckling family. So the lost dino leaves the nest on a quest to find his place among the barnyard animals. Will Rex ever find where he truly belongs? In this Far Out Fables adventure, Hans Christian Andersen's The Ugly Duckling receives a playful, modern twist. Experience a classic fable like never before in this full-color graphic novel retelling for kids!

Horn Book Review

Each brief, accessible paneled comic retells a fable with a sci-fi twist: a bored boy in Transylvania pranks villagers about a vampire attacking (until it does), a time portal drops a T. rex egg at a modern farmhouse, etc. The unremarkable revamps are improved by thorough back matter, which notes changes to source materials and poses "visual questions" to help navigate graphic narratives. Glos. [Review covers these Far Out Fables titles: The Boy Who Cried Vampire, The Lion and the Mouse and the Invaders from Zurg, The Robo-Battle of Mega Tortoise vs. Hazard Hare, and The Ugly Dino Hatchling.] (c) Copyright 2019.
