The Story About Ping - by Marjorie Flack
No one can deny the appeal of the book's hero, Ping—the spirited little duck who lives on a boat on the Yangtze River. Children will relate to Ping's misadventures as he begins to explore the world around his home, only to become separated from his large duck family. Ping’s quest to find his family sets the beloved duckling on a journey that is timeless in its appeal to children, and the adults who love them. Kurt Wiese's warm and poignant illustrations enhance the tender quality of this classic.
