The Ugly Duckling Story

The story of the Ugly Duckling..
Once upon a time, on a farm next to a pond Mother Duck was sitting on her nest on her eggs. it was a summer’s day. Slowly, one by one her eggs all cracked open. The ducklings’ all said, “quack quack” But one egg did not hatch.

Grandfather Duck heard all the quacking and went to see Mother Duck. Mother Duck told him about the egg that had not hatched. Grandfather Duck thought the egg looked like a Turkey’s egg because it was so big.  After a few days of waiting, the big egg hatched. Mother Duck could see that the duckling was not the same as the others. İt was bigger, white and ugly Mother Duck was sure the duckling would change and become like the others.

Mother Duck and the ducklings went swimming in the pond. The Ugly Duckling could swim much better than the others could. Mother Duck was very happy about this. After their swim Mother Duck took the ducklings to the farmyard to play. The farm animals saw the Ugly Duckling and were very mean to him. They told him he looked ugly and that he did not look like the other ducklings.  The Ugly Duckling became very sad.

Mother Duck was not happy with the other animals and told them to leave The Ugly Duckling alone. Mother Duck told them how well the Ugly Duckling swam, and how she thought he would look like the other ducklings in a few days. The days went by, and nobody listened to Mother Duck. the farm animal still made fun of the Ugly Duckling. The other ducklings were also mean to him and would not play with him.

The Ugly Duckling felt very sad. He did not want to be at the farm anymore. One night he ran away. He went a long, long way and fell asleep in a muddy marsh. The next morning, the Ugly Duckling woke to see some of the wild ducks looking at him, he asked them if he could stay with them. They told him that he was ugly so he could not stay with them and had to go. The Ugly Duckling was very sad. Nobody was ready to be his friend because he was so ugly. İt started to rain so the Ugly Duckling found a place to stay dry. He took shelter under the porch of an old house. The next day the house door opened, and a big dog came outside. The dog barked at the Ugly Duckling, and the duckling had to run away very quickly.

The days went by and winter came, the Ugly Duckling was very cold. He lived alone near a pond and made his home in the long grass. İt was a long winter. Finally spring came with sunny days. One day on the pond, the Ugly Duckling saw three beautiful white swans swimming. The Ugly Duckling knew that they would not want him as a friend because he was too ugly. The three swans saw the Ugly Duckling and swam over to him. They said, “Hello new Swan.” the Ugly Duckling asked them why they called him a swan when he was a duck.
The swans told him that he was not a duck and to look at his reflection in the water.

The Ugly Duckling was very happy with his reflection in the water. He was not an Ugly Duckling anymore; he was a handsome white swan. The three swans were happy to be his friends, and they all swam in the pond.
