Summary

Hans Christian Andersen's classic tale of The Ugly Duckling illustrated in colour and black and white by English illustrator John Hassall. Here he shows his wonderful poster style that so suits children's books. Pook Press celebrates the great Golden Age of Illustration in children's literature. Many of the earliest children's books, particularly those dating back to the 1850s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Pook Press are working to republish these classic works in high quality, colour editions, using the original text and artwork so these works can delight another generation of children.
