9780140502411: The Story About Ping (Picture Puffin)

Ping the yellow duck hides from his whole family one night to try and avoid a spanking. There is no sign of any of them the next morning, and Ping's subsequent adventures make him long to go home - whatever the price. Marjorie Flack's story set on the Yangtze River was first published in the 1930s.

Product Description:

Ping is a duck living with his massive family on the Yangtze River.

Review:

The tale of a little duck alone on the Yangtze River, The Story About Ping is a sweet and funny book with wonderfully rich and colourful illustrations. On a day like any other, Ping sets off from the boat he calls home with his comically large family in search of "pleasant things to eat". On this particular day, he is accidentally left behind when the boat leaves. Undaunted, the little duck heads out onto the Yangtze in search of his family, only to find new friends and adventures--and a bit of peril--around every bend. The exceptional illustrations bring the lush Yangtze to life, from Ping's family to the trained fishing birds he finds himself among, to the faithfully rendered boats and fishermen. Certainly intended to be read aloud, The Story About Ping deserves a place on every young reader's (or listener's) shelf. (Picture book)
