Book Review: Flora and the Flamingo by Molly Idle
Flora and the Flamingo by Molly Idle unfolds like a silent movie. Flora and the flamingo in delightful pink illustrations form an unlikely partnership mirroring each pose from graceful to the absurd. Clearly these two bathing beauties enjoy their playful exchange. Dancing together like synchronized swimmers, they glide with balletic grace from page to page. Handy fold out pages tell a story of companionship, friendship and even a small bit of competition. This is an adorable wordless picture book, lovingly made to be enjoyed time after time after time.
