Overview

This hilarious holiday book celebrates Christmas-Miami-style!

It's Christmas time when a flamingo peers out of the tropical garden where he lives and notices downtown Miami; a city aglow in red and green lights and Christmas trees. Curious, he decides to investigate this strange holiday everyone seems to celebrating. The more he learns about Christmas, the more he hopes to be a part of it-but he worries. Can a clumsy pink tropical bird be a part of this perfect red and green holiday? He doesn't see any pink lights! And then he gets an idea...there just might be a spot in a nativity scene for one more animal!

From the illustrator of The Useful Moose and author of Double Those Wheels comes an original, heart-warming tale just in time for the holidays!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publishers Weekly
Red and green lights? Decorated palm trees? Just what is the flap going on in Miami in late December? Flamingo is on a quest to find out in Day's (Double Those Wheels) holiday story with some South Florida flash. The perky pink bird soon stumbles, literally, upon a number of Christmas traditions. The novice's viewpoint brings comic perspective to the holiday: he's nearly trampled in the shopping rush and then spies a long line of kids waiting for Santa ("They weren't going anywhere fast"). After some humorous missteps, Flamingo finds he can play a special role in the Christmas chaos after all. Robinson's (The Useful Moose) tall oil paintings emphasize Flamingo's lanky legs-and all the good-natured silliness of the book's scenario. Ages 4-8. (Nov.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
