The Ugly Duckling

Based on the tale by Hans Christian Andersen, the ugly duckling is born into a farmyard where chickens, hens and ducks lay their eggs. His large egg had been found by the rooster who had slipped it into the clutch of his partner. However, when the ugly duckling hatches he is immediately shunned by his adopted parents and all other animals in the farmyard. After enduring suspicion and humiliation, the ugly duckling is eventually forced to leave the farmyard and enter the great wide world to search for his own kind.
