With only his lucky pig for company, Tien Pao must begin a long and dangerous journey in search of his home and family. 'A vividly realistic story of China during the early days of the Japanese invasion [which tells of young Tien Pao's journey to find his family].' --C.'Valuable as enrichment literature for elementary students involved in Chinese studies.' --Scholastic Teacher.
