    The Ugly Duckling print

    The Ugly Duckling, from Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tale, meets some wild ducks.The text reads:On the morrow the wild ducks saw him. "And who may you be?" said they; "you certainly are an ugly fellow, but we don't mind that so long as you don't want to marry into our family." Poor ugly duckling! he was only too happy to be allowed to eat and drink and sleep in the rushes.From The Ugly Duckling, 1894.
