The City Mouse and the Country Mouse has a moral, so it is officially a fable (I think it �s one of Aesop �s, but I �m not entirely sure).
The Ugly Duckling is a story by Hans Christian Andersen, so it is usually classified as a fairy tale, but there �s nothing magical in it, so it could just be called a children �s story.
