The Not-So Ugly Duckling
Emily · Age 11 · Kildare
We were asked to create something extraordinary and I realised that if you were to break up the word it becomes extraordinary. Because of that, I decided to take an everyday animal and enlighten you to how they’re extraordinary. You’d imagine that I’d draw a peacock, a swan or some other equally elegant animal but instead, I drew a mallard duckling. To me a duckling shines with beauty, its subtle colours reflecting on the water. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
