Description

Elmer is not like the other boy ducklings. While they like to build forts, he loves to bake cakes. While they like to play baseball, he wants to put on the halftime show. Elmer is a great big sissy. But when his father is wounded by a hunter's shot, Elmer proves that the biggest sissy can also be the greatest hero.

Acclaimed actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein has crafted a heartwarming story, based on his award-winning HBO animated special, about learning to embrace the special qualities we all possess. Henry Cole's gently humorous illustrations give it a new vitality. This eBook with audio is a story to share with all children, to help them understand that each one of them is unique and valuable.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 27, 2005 –  "Fierstein turns a gimlet eye to Hans Christian Andersen in this ducky tale," according to PW's starred review. "Cole makes a sympathetic hero of the skinny yellow nonconformist." Ages 5-8.
