As a kid, stories like The Ugly Duckling used to annoy me because it said that when you grew up into a beautiful swan everyone would love you and everything would be ok.

Inside, every kid knows that. So that was really where Fairy Tales for the Cynic came from: what happens to those of us ugly ducklings who grow up into ugly ducks?
