Written by Hans Christian Andersen, The Ugly Duckling is still one of the most beautiful stories about coming of age. A swan egg accidentally ends up in a duck’s nest, so out of this egg emerges a larger, an “uglier”, a different kind of “duckling” than any of the others. Being the object of all the shenanigans, pranks and ironies, the little swan has no other choice than to run away from this world, nurturing the hope that one day he may find a better place for himself.
Can our little swan persist through all the perils of the wilderness and the meddling of others? Let’s find out together. All we can say for now, is that some pleasant surprises await him as spring arrives.
