When Mother Duck's last egg finally hatched, she was amazed. This duckling was big and clumsy. His neck was much too long and he honked instead of quacking. The other ducklings would not play with him because he looked and sounded so different from them. They made fun of him and called him ugly, so he usually swam by himself.
Then, one day, the ugly duckling came upon a flock of large birds with long necks and beautiful black feather, just like his. They honked at him, so he honked back. Come swim with us! They called to him. Then the ugly duckling was happy because he found friend who looked and sounded like he did.
