Description
A little duck finds adventure on the Yangtze River when he is too late to board his master's houseboat one evening.
Description
This classic story about a duckling who lives on a boat on the Yangtze River has charmed readers since 1933. When the owner calls for the ducks to come home, Ping, the smallest duck, tries not to be the last up the gangplank--for the last duck counted gets spanked on the back. One evening Ping misses the call to come home and stays out all night. His harrowing adventures the following day send him paddling back, only to be last again. Poor Ping. --,from Barnes & Noble.
