4.0 / 7.0

This story had some really cool aspects! I loved the aspects of fun culture Ping shows us, and how the boy stayed afloat by tying a barrel to his back. However, there wasn’t enough to this book that I would personally buy it for my kiddos. It was a little lackluster, even though there were interesting pieces. The story is predictable and a little boring, and there’s no real message for a young reader.
