Description

A flamingo has blown off course, and landed in a seaside town. It looks like a very nice town and might be a good place for her to settle down, but she isn?t quite sure she'll fit in. She tries to find a flock of her own; unfortunately, all her looking comes to nothing. But the people in the town are keen to keep their flamingo friend. What better way to make her feel at home than to paint the town pink.

Inspired by the story of two flamingos that were sighted in Newfoundland years ago, Lori Doody has crafted a charming, gentle and quirky tale about being a stranger in a new place, needing to belong, and ultimately being welcomed in the warmest of ways. Young readers and listeners will have great fun looking for flamingos tucked into the illustrations, and watching as the town and the townsfolk gradually make their feathered friend one of the family. The book also includes a brief list of flamingo facts.
