Tafuri, Nancy. Have You Seen My Duckling? New York: Greenwillow Books, 1984.

McCloskey, Robert. Make Way for Ducklings. New York: Viking Press, 1941.

Flack, Marjorie, and Kurt Wiese. The Story About Ping. New York: Viking Press, 1933.

Pinkney, Jerry, and H. C. Andersen. The Ugly Duckling. New York: Morrow Junior Books, 1999.

ps. Today is the birthday of Hans Christian Andersen, the originator of the Ugly Duckling story.
