He stayed there for two
days, feeling very tired and lonely. The wild
ducks came and looked at him.
"You're very ugly !" they said and laughed at
Poor little ugly duckling!
He ran away over the fields and meadows. The
wind blew and the duckling was so cold and tired.
It was getting dark and he looked for somewhere
to spend the night. Luckily, he found a little
cottage. There was a gap in the door and he
went inside for some warmth.
