Synopsis

The Story About Ping by Marjorie Flack

This classic children's book was first published in 1933 and is still as delightful and relevant as ever. Ping's owner takes him and his siblings to the river for dinner. When it's time to go, Ping is the last duck in the water and, as such, will receive a spanking. To avoid punishment, he hides-only to be captured the next morning by a young boy for his family's dinner. Finally Ping is set free, and when he sees his master's boat, the last thing he fears is a spanking-he's just thankful to be home!
