Kick the Duck!

Illustration from The Ugly Duckling.
“And the dairy-maid kicked him away with her foot.”
Hans Andersen’s Fairy Tales. By William Woodburn. Illustrated by Gordon Robinson. W. & R. Chambers Limited: London & Edinburgh. 1917.

“The other ducks still bit him, the hens pecked him, and the dairy-maid kicked him away with her foot.

At last he could bear it no longer, and flew away over the hedge. The little birds in the bushes cried out with fear. ‘Ah, it is because I am so ugly,’ thought the poor duckling, as he stole away.”
