LONDON: GRANT RICHARDS 1903

Once upon a time there was a little boy called Little Yellow Wang lo. He lived with his father in a boat which was moored in a river near a town.

His name was Fo Pa (little Yellow Wang lo always called him Pa). He was a duck merchant and had hundreds of ducks white ducks, black ducks, brown ducks, big ducks, little baby ducks, and middle sized ducks ducks that said quack, drakes that said quork, and ducklings that said queek.

[Illustration]

Little Yellow Wang lo had to get up very early every morning to call the ducks close round the houseboat, and then he used to feed them; when they had eaten their breakfasts they all swam away down the river to look for little fishes, frogs and other things, and only came back at night when it was time to have supper and to go to bed.

One hot day Fo Pa, who was a very fat little man, called little Yellow Wang lo and told him to put on his Sunday clothes, take the little boat and row to land and sell the ducks in the market; then he was to buy a pig and bring it back to be roasted for dinner.

Little Yellow Wang lo's eyes shone with excitement at the idea of going on land, and his mouth watered at the prospect of roast pork for dinner. So he hurried into his best coat, hat and shoes, and, jumping into the boat, rowed quickly to land.

He soon sold all his fat ducks in one corner of the market.

So then he went to another corner where the pigs were sold, and after looking at several pigs black pigs, white pigs, red pigs, and spotted pigs he chose a little black pig that had white feet; he tied a string to one of its legs and started off for home.

But the little pig had a will of his own, and would not go the way little Yellow Wang lo wanted. So little Yellow Wang lo got a stick and beat the pig, and the pig began to pull and pull at the string, and the more little Wang lo beat him the more he squealed and the faster he ran right through the town, away from the river out into the country.

The poor little boy was not used to running, and he soon got very tired and hot; but on piggie ran, and at last little Yellow Wang lo tripped over a stone, the string broke, and down he fell.

Getting up quickly, he saw the little pig knocking at a little gate, and he heard it say:

"Let me in, mother; let me in."

And a voice said: "Who's there?"

And the little pig answered: "It's little Wee wee come home again."

But the mother said: "How am I to know it is little Wee wee? I will open the gate a little crack, and you must show me if you have white feet... Continue reading book >>
