It was a lovely summer day in the country. Mother Duck sat on her eggs for a long time. After a while, one by one, ducklings came o ut of the eggs. Ducklings: Peep, peep Mother Duck: Quack, quack! Are you all out? Duckling1: No, one egg is still here. Look how big it is! At last, the big egg came open. This duckling was very big and ver y ugly! MD: Oh,my!This duckling is big and different from the others. I won der if it is a turkey. We will soon find out. Mother Duck took her ducklings to the water. One after another, the little ducklings jumped in the water. The Ugly Duckling also jumped in the water and swam very well. MD: Oh, he is not a turkey. Turkeys can’t swim. He is my child. L et’s go to the farmyard. But you must stay close to me and watch out for the cat. Duck1:Look at that duckling! He looks so strange. Duck2:He is so big and ugly. Go away! MD: Please, leave him alone. He is not doing any harm. But the ducks pecked the Ugly Duckling. All the animals in the farm yard bit him and pushed him, too. Ducklings: I wish the cat would eat you! MD: You should never have been born. So the poor, little duckling was very sad. Finally, he ran away. UD: Why does everyone hate me? Is it because I am so ugly? But I am really nice. The Ugly Duckling met two wild ducks. WD: What kind of duck are you? You are really ugly. But that’s OK, if you don’t marry one of our family Then the Ugly Duckling heard, “Pop, pop!”And the two wild duck s fell dead. Just then, many hunting dogs appeared. The Ugly Duckling was very afraid. So, he tucked his head under his wing. A hunting dog sniff ed the Ugly Duckling. “Sniff, sniff!” Dogs: You are ugly! And they went away without touching the Ugly Duckling. UD: Oh, I am alive! No one wants me. Even dogs don’t want to bi te me. He felt lucky but, at the same time, he felt sad. The poor duckling waited for several hours, and then, ran away. A storm began. The rain and lightning terrified the Ugly Duckling. H e was so cold and wet! He ran and ran as he looked for shelter fr om the storm. Finally, he arrived at a cottage. An old woman, a cat, and a hen liv ed in this cottage. He went inside. UD: May I have some food? Old Woman: Oh, what a prize! Is it a fat duck? Now, I can have du ck’s eggs. The old woman’s sight was very bad. So the duckling lived there f or a few days. But the hen and the cat were mean to the duckling. Hen: I can lay eggs. Can you do that? UD: No. Cat: I can catch a mouse. Can you do that? UD: No. Cat: Then, what can you do? UD: I can swim. Cat: Oh, no one should swim! You will surely drown! UD: I won’t drown. Cat and Hen: You are a big liar! So the poor duckling left the cottage. Soon, summer turned into fall. The Ugly Duckling swam in the pond. A group of swans flew over the duckling. UD: What beautiful birds! I wish I could be like them. The weather grew colder and colder. Now, winter came. UD:I must swim and swim, or the pond will freeze around me. But every night, the space became smaller and smaller. Finally, the pond froze, and the duckling couldn’t move any more. Early in the morning, a farmer saw the frozen duckling. Farmer: Oh, poor duckling! I’ll take you home to my wife and child ren. The wife took care of the duckling. Soon, the duckling got well. But the children wanted to play with the duckling. Children: Come play with us! Come play with us! The duckling was scared. The farmer’s wife and the children chase d the duckling around the farm house. Finally, he ran out the door. A beautiful spring came. The Ugly Duckling saw the butterflies danci ng and heard the birds singing. One day, his wings felt very strong. So, he flapped them against hi s sides and flew high into the sky. UD: Wow, I can fly so high! What’s happened to me? The Ugly Duckling saw a beautiful garden with a pond. He decided t o rest there for a while. UD: I want to stay with these beautiful birds. But, they will kill me because I am so ugly. At least, I will die happily, if I can be with t hem for a while. So, he swam towards the swans. When the swans saw the young bi rd, they swam to him. UD: Peck me, if you must! And he bent his head down to the surface of the water. The Ugly D uckling saw a beautiful swan looking back at him in the water! UD: Oh! Is that really me? I am a beautiful swan! I am not an ugly duckling after all! The three swans welcomed the young swan. Some children came to the pond and threw pieces of bread into the water.

丑小鸭 Ugly Duckling The countryside was lovely. It was summer. The wheat was golden and the oats were still green. The hay was stacked in the low-lying meadows. There lay great woods around the fields and meadows. There were deep lakes in the midst of the woods. In the sunniest spot stood an old mansion surrounded by a deep moat. Great leaves grew from the vines on the walls of the house right down to the water's edge. Some of the leaves were so big that a child could use them as an umbrella. In the depths of a forest a duck was sitting in her nest. Her little ducklings were about to be hatched. At last one egg after another began to crack." Cheep, cheep!" the ducklings said." Quack, quack!" said the duck. " How big the world is!" said all the young ones. But the biggest egg was still there. And then she settled herself on the nest again. "Well, how are you getting on?" said an old duck who came to pay her a visit." This egg is taking such a long time," answered the sitting duck." The shell will not crack, but the others are the finest ducklings. They are like their father." "let me look at the egg which won't crack," said the old duck." You may be sitting on a turkey's egg! I have been cheated like that once. Yes. it's a turkey's egg! You had better leave it alone and teach the other children to swim." "I will sit on it a little longer." At last the big egg cracked. How big and ugly the baby was! " That is a very big duckling." she said, " None of the others look like that. Can he be a turkey's chick? I will soon find out. I will make him go into water." The next day the mother duck with her family went down to the moat. She said, and one duckling jumped in after another. The big ugly one swam about with them." No, that is no turkey," she said," Quack, quack! Now come with me and I will take you into the world. Keep close to me all the time. Be careful of the cat!" The first day passed, and everything was fine. Afterwards, matters grew worse and worse. The poor duckling was chased and harassed by all the ducklings because he was very ugly.The ducks bit him, the hens pecked him. and the girl who fed them kicked him aside. Then he ran off and soon came to a great marsh where the wild ducks lived. He was so tired and miserable that he stayed there the whole night. In the morning the wild ducks flew up to see their new friend." You are very ugly," said the wild ducks," but that does not matter to us." He stayed there two whole days . And then two wild geese came. Just at that moment the sound of "Bang! Bang!" was heard, and both the wild geese fell dead among the reeds. It was a terrible shock to the poor duckling. A big dog appeared close beside him. He showed his sharp teeth and went on without touching him. "Oh, thank Heaven! I am so ugly that even the dog won't bite me!" sighed the duckling. In the evening he reached a little cottage where an old woman lived with her cat and her hen. Her eyesight was not good, and she thought the duckling was a fat duck. will be rich if I have duck eggs," she said. So she took in the duckling for three weeks, but he laid no eggs. The cat was the master of the house and the hen was the mistress. "Can you lay eggs?" asked the hen. "No," answered the duckling. "Then you had better go out into the wide world," said the cat. So away went the duckling. One evening the sun was just setting when a flock of beautiful large birds appeared out of the bushes. The duckling thought," I've never seen anything so beautiful." They were dazzlingly white with long necks. They were swans. He did not know what the birds were. The winter was so bitterly cold that the duckling swam about in the water to keep himself from freezing. The sun began to shine warmly again. The larks were singing and beautiful spring had come. Then, all at once, the duckling raised his wings and they flapped with much greater strength than before. Before he knew it, he found himself in a large garden where the apple trees were in full blossom and long branches of lilacs overhung the shores of the lake. Just in front of him he saw three beautiful white swans swimming towards him. "I will fly to them and they will hack me to pieces because I am so ugly. But it doesn't matter. I would rather be killed by them than be bitten by the ducks or pecked by the hens." So he flew into the water and swam towards the swans. They saw him and darted towards him. "Kill me! Oh, kill me!" said the poor duckling, and he waited for his death bowing his head towards the water. But what did he see in the clear water? He was no longer a dark gray ugly bird. He was himself a swan! Some children came into the garden with corn and pieces of bread, which they threw into the water. The smallest child shouted with joy," There is a new one." The other children shouted, "Yes, a new one has come." He said to himself, " I never dreamed that I could be so happy when I was the ugly duckling!"
