Author ChoicesMarco the Flamingo is curious about where the snowbirds come from. They tell him it is cold and miserable and basically where he lives is paradise. But that isn't enough for Marco. One day he heads North. Of course the implication is that he'll freeze and want to return to the warm South, but this beautifully illustrated book takes a twist. With more illustration than words, the readers/viewers of this book are drawn into the joy Marco finds in skiing and skating and enjoying the cold North. Not only does he not freeze, he sends a postcard not from the warm South to the cold North, but from the North to the South expressing his joy. While the whole book elicits a smile the final twist, which I won't divulge, even more so. A wonderful book.
