This is a story about a little bird, born in a duck´s nest but hatched from a swan´s egg. The story tells us that even though you feel different, maybe even picked upon, you can find your way in life and grow to be a ‘beautiful swan’. This is also thought to be the story about Andersen’s own life, a fairy tale he wrote quite late in his life after gaining success against many odds. The Ugly Duckling is a perfect illustrated introduction to children to remember not to judge by appearance.

Hans Christian Andersen

Hans Christian Andersen (2 April 1805 – 4 August 1875) was a Danish author. Although a prolific writer of plays, travelogues, novels, and poems, he is best remembered for his literary fairy tales.
Andersen’s fairy tales, consisting of 156 stories across nine volumes and translated into more than 125 languages, have become culturally embedded in the West’s collective consciousness, readily accessible to children, but presenting lessons of virtue and resilience in the face of adversity for mature readers as well. His stories have inspired ballets, plays, and animated and live-action films.
