Ubi once lived in China with his family of five. He had a mom, a dad, and two sisters. They were happy together, until one day. They were out scourging for food in the Bamboo Forest. Ubi decided to go off on his own to find the best bamboo, deep within the forest. Deeper, and deeper he went until he heard a sound. He stopped but the sound did not. It got louder and louder, closer and closer. The Bamboo trees in front of him were sliced down and behind them were a group of men. Ubi tried to run away, but was easily tranquilized by the men. He fell into a deep sleep. Unaware that he was being transported out of the country.
When Ubi came to, he was in a small metal box with bars. There was some food and water for him, but he was too scared to care about eating. He soon realized that he was not alone. There was a giraffe, a rhino, some monkeys, and another panda. Ubi was interested in the panda. He asked her what her name was. She replied Shenzi. The talked throughout the rest of the plane ride. He learned that she came from the same forest as he did and that the others came from a place called Africa. He learned that he was being taken to a place call America.
When the plane landed, Ubi and Shenzi were taken to a cage within the zoo called the "Bears" section. He saw many other bears; grizzlies, sun bears, and black bears. They all interested him. In a way he was excited about this place because it was all new and interesting to him.
For the first few weeks everything was fine, but that all changed when they took Shenzi away. She was being transferred to another zoo in a far away land. He never got the chance to see her again. After that, life in the zoo seemed pointless. He was sad and depressed. He has stayed here for about five years.
One day, Ubi was being taken out of his cage for it to be cleaned and was put inside a temporary cage, inside the "Monkey" section. He sat there all depressed like and the oldest and wisest monkey named Oaka saw him. He asked Ubi why he was depressed. Ubi said he misses his family and friends. Oaka told him that if he wants to escape, the monkeys could help him. Ubi was excited, but he had no idea of how we would get from America to China. Oaka told Ubi about a train that passes by the zoo every Tuesday of the first week of every month that goes towards the West. He told Ubi that this train would arrive in two weeks.
They devised a plan and they practiced it till Ubi had to go back to his old cage. Ubi had to make his cage dirty within those two weeks. He was dirty and made a mess all over his cage. The day before "Operation Panda" would be carried out, Ubi was transferred out of his cage and put in his temporary cage in the "Monkey" section. The monkeys had stolen the keys to the cages and released themselves and Ubi. They started releasing other animals as well to make a distraction for Ubi.
Ubi escaped the zoo and took the train like Oaka suggested. The train went all the way to California. Ubi snuck onto a boat that went to China. He was so excited, finally he was going home. He reached land, and he traveled east, towards the bamboo forest that he grew up in. He continued until he saw a bunch of Pandas. He recognized them as his family. He finally was reunited with his family at last. He lived there till the end of his days and was happy.
