The Ugly Duckling

The classic story from Hans Christian Andersen tells a disguised human story by using animal symbolism. It unites animal transformation and animal moral tale in a unique way, and teaches about being friends with people who are different from us. After realising he is not alone in the world after all, the ugly duckling, (or beautiful swan?) finally accepts himself and finds happiness.
