Drawn for the Words and Art Storybook Challenge.
This was one of my favorite books as a child. It was published in 1933 so it’s old!
it’s interesting because it depicts a little Chinese boy with his Chinese father fisherman going out on a boat with their ducks and letting the ducks swim as they fish. The ducks are supposed to come back when called but little Ping doesn’t come back because he’s distracted. The boat leaves without him and he realizes he’s been left and he get scared. The boat returns to pick him up and the little Chinese boy hits him on his back as he walks the plank to the boat with a stick for being late.
I liked the book because of the ducks and I was always fascinated with the Chinese culture as a child but now that I think about the story, it’s got some animal abuse in it! Yikes...😱
