Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Since 1933, The Story About Ping has captivated generations of readers, but never before has it been available in a mass-market paperback format. No one can deny the appeal of the book's hero, Ping, the spirited little duck who lives on a boat on the Yangtze River. Ping's misadventures one night while exploring the world around his home form the basis of this timeless classic, which is brought to life by Kurt Wiese's warm and poignant illustrations.

Biographie de l'auteur

Marjorie Flack first got the idea for her classic story from her first book, written by her friend Helen Lomen. The Peking ducks in Angus and the Ducks so intrigued her that she began researching them. The Story About Ping was the result. She went on to write and illustrate many more children's stories, including Boats on the River, illustrated by Jay Hyde Barnum, which was named a Caldecott Honor Book. Ms. Flack died in 1958.

Kurt Wiese illustrated almost three hundred books for children. Books he both wrote and illustrated include You Can Write Chinese and Fish in the Air. Both stories were named Caldecott Honor Books, and reflect his experiences as a traveler in China where he lived for six years. Mr. Wiese died in 1974.

We get to follow Ping and take part in his adventures. Great pictures and we learn a little bit about things like fishing birds.

This is a children's book. Some people take exception to the fact that last one on the boat gets a swat. Unfortunately they miss the rest of the story.

This is part of a series of books called Reading Railroad Books."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A beautiful (and different) adventure 1 janvier 2017
Par ZDF - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I enjoyed reading Ping as a child. It tells an exciting story of a young duck thrust into a huge (and often scary) world by his hasty decisions.

I love the artwork in this book. It has a (not unexpected) far eastern feel, which really enhances the sense of wonder and adventure. It is neither patronizing nor a caricature of Asian culture, which probably betrays the period in which is was written (As an adult, I would have expected the latter based on its publication date, and the former if it was written today).

The real winner here is the narrative. It treats a young reader with honesty and respect. Ping's actions may make sense in the short term, but have long term ramifications as the story unfolds. It shows a child real life consequences and that admitting your faults can be the best way to go. The story may lack the themes of heroism and non-conformity that dominate today's literature for children, but that is what makes Ping so special. Highly recommended!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A family tradition 24 avril 2015
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
When I was born, my great-grandmother wrote a letter to Dear Abby asking for the recommendation of a good story book to read to me. Dear Abby suggested "Ping." I still have the original clipping from the Dallas Morning News!! I remember LOVING to hear the story being read to me. I bought a copy for my kids when they were babies, now that I have a granddaughter of my own, of course I bought it to read to her. I still love the rhythm of the book and its gentle illustrations.

I don't know what parents today would make of its plot, given that there is a "smack" given to the last duck up the ramp at the end of each day. Ping hates the smack, hates that it hurts and hates that it marks him as "last" every day. One day he doesn't go home because he's last and doesn't want the smack. On his own, he encounters adventure, grave danger, makes a friend, and finds his way home again, realizing that smack isn't the worst thing that could happen to a duckling who strays beyond the boundaries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ... that people invited to her baby shower give a favorite childhood book instead of buying a greeting card 29 décembre 2015
Par Reetz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
My niece in-law has suggested that people invited to her baby shower give a favorite childhood book instead of buying a greeting card. This is such a great idea because you can write your sentiments on the inside cover of the book and Mom and baby will have the book and sentiments forever. The Story About Ping is one of my most favorite childhood stories and I am excited to share it with the new little grand niece or nephew. The book arrived on time and in perfect shape - no problems with shipping or packaging.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Brings back memories 20 novembre 2016

I purchased this book for my first grandchild when he was born. It was the same story that I read to his father when he was very little and wanted him to share the same experience. My son's eyes shown and he smiled when he opened the box, saying that he remembered the story and me reading to him when he was a child. It brought back fond memories.
