Annotation Ping is an excellent gardener who can make almost any plant flourish and bloom. Needing a successor, the Emperor, who also enjoys gardening, comes up with a contest. He distributes a seed to every child in the kingdom, declaring that whoever grows the most beautiful plant will be the new emperor. Ping is more than disappointed when his carefully tended seed refuses to grow and all he has to present to the Emperor is an empty pot. Has Ping really lost the competition? Pen-and-watercolor illustrations accompany the text.

Editors Note 2 A long time ago in China there was a boy named Ping who loved flowers. Anything he planted burst into bloom.The Emperor loved flowers too. When it was time to choose an heir, he gave a flower seed to each child in the kingdom. "Whoever can show me their best in a year's time," he proclaimed, "shall succeed me to the throne!"Ping plants his seed and tends it every day. But month after month passes, and nothing grows. When spring comes, Ping must go to the Emperor with nothing but an empty pot.Demi's exquisite art and beautifully simple text show how Ping's embarassing failure is turned triumphant in this satisfying tale of honesty rewarded.
