This is the delightful story of Ping the duck who lives on the Yangtze River with his family. One night, to avoid a spanking for being the last duck home to the boat, he hides and stays out all night. The next morning, he is lost upon the large river among many many boats, none of them his. After he is caught by a little boy and locked under a basket, will he ever make it home again?
