The Ugly Duckling is a Danish fairy tale by poet and author Hans Christian Anderson, first published in 1843.
The Ugly Duckling is a fairy tale about a young bird who is rejected by his family and peers because of his appearance. He is ostracized and ridiculed until he grows up and transforms into a beautiful swan. The story is often seen as a metaphor for personal transformation and the importance of inner beauty.
