Summary On a visit to the Forbidden City, Xiao Ming became separated from his father. On his search, he went down stairs and crossed a pathway that led him out at the other end. Surprise! He found himself in the Qing Dynasty! Xiao Ming met some Imperial Bodyguards who took him to the Little Emperor. Xiao Ming described the air planes and cars in the future to the Little Emperor, who also showed Xiao Ming his treasures. The most special piece was a bronze dragon, which suddenly carried the Little Emperor and Xiao Ming up into the sky. They had a panoramic view of the entire Forbidden City. Then Xiao Ming fell from the tail of the dragon into the city moat, which brought him back to the real world and reunites him with his anxious father.
