On the grass next to a pond,the mother duck's eggs were hatching.
The ducklings began to hatch and came out one by one. Only one big egg had not moved or made a sound.
Is this big egg also a duck?" Everyone asked the mother duck, but she did not know.
The big eggshell cracked, from inside out came a big and ugly duckling. Everyone called him Ugly Duckling.
When the Ugly Duck-ling went to the pond to swim, the frog said: "Ribbit! Ribbit! I do not like you, go away!"
The Ugly Duckling had to leave the pond and walked towards the forest .
In the forest, the Ugly Duckling met a dog. "Woof! Woof! I do not like you, go away!" said the dog.
On the hillside, the Ugly Duckling met a pig. The pig said:"Oink! Oink! I do not like you, go away!"
The Ugly Duckling cried sadly. A little girl came over and said:"Please come to my house!"
He is very happy. He shouts, “I am a swan!”
