Fairy Tale Friday- In The Duck-Yard

This little fairy tale was a strange one. I love the quirky fairy tales from Hans Christian Andersen. This fairy tale centres around a Portuguese duck who really appreciates herself. She does act a little superior to others. One day, she comes across a songbird who is injured after being chased by a cat. She finds an injured songbird back to health, because that’s a nice thing to do! Everything seems okay for a while, but the Portuguese duck seems to be getting quite irritated by others around her. After a while, the duck gets frustrated with the beautiful songbird. She believes the songbird is insulting her, so she bites its head off. How charming, hey?

  1. I think anytime one of my friends is being annoying I’ll just say, “You mustn’t be so touchy. I have nerves, too, but I have never yet said, ‘Peep!'”
