Book Excerpt: 
. . .They steal the wisest from among us while yet they are children, and bear them away to their own land, and give them over to their own teachers. Thus come back your own, with power and authority to scourge you. Your sons, your brothers come back to you, learned, praised greatly, having striven against the Feringhi in their own schools, and won what they desired. Collector-sahib, Judge-sahib, yea, even padre-sahib, come they back to you—not to lift you to honor and happiness beside them, but to side with those that oppress you, to grind taxes from you who starve, to imprison you who would be free. Sons of unspeakable shame! They drink your blood, they fatten on your misery, and they have their reward. We curse, them, brothers! The Feringhis smile upon them, they eat bread and salt in their company, but they spit when they have passed by!"

The Ugly Duckling is one of the most famous fairy tales of Danish Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875). I am still to read the whole collection but I got a copy of this book as I try to buy a few children's books every payday for our outreach program for child literacy on May 25, 2013 to be held a...more

I feel like this is one of the most powerful fables told to children. It is one of my favorite stories. I think it is also one of the archetypes that is really running in todays world. There are so many people who don’t feel like they belong to their families, who are rejected by their communitie...more

One of the most known and most loved fairy tales of all. I loved it as a kid and so did my kids and my grandchildren. It is emotional and touching as you see what the duckling goes through, and many kids can relate to that. It is a wonderful lesson of self-acceptance, and getting through difficul...more

You guys know I hate Hans Christian Anderson's way of ending the stories. I started this with the same expectations. But unexpectedly here I got the happy ending! HAPPY ENDING!!

A wonderful story of a duckling facing discrimination just because of her appearance. Emotional and heart-touching. Reading it in my school days, I remember getting tearful over this one.

Is there anyone who does not know the the famous fairytale story of The Ugly Duckling? Originally the Danish author, Hans Christian Andersen called it (view spoiler)[ “The Young Swans” (hide spoiler)], but then decided against giving away the surprise ending, and renamed it The Ugly Duckling (“Den grimme ælling”). So just in...more

It's a wonderful story about Self-acceptance,The Difference and how it does not necessarily mean a bad thing!
