Having mastered ballet in Flora and the Flamingo, Flora takes to the ice and forms an unexpected friendship with a penguin. Twirling, leaping, spinning, and gliding, on skates and flippers, the duo mirror each other's graceful dance above and below the ice. But when Flora gives the penguin the cold shoulder, the pair must figure out a way to work together for uplifting results. Artist Molly Idle creates an innovative, wordless picture book with clever flaps that reveal Flora and the penguin coming together, spiraling apart, and coming back together as only true friends do.
For more feathery fun, pick up Flora and the Flamingo, Flora and the Peacocks, Flora and Friends Matching Game or, coming soon, Flora and the Chicks.

This is a wonderful wordless picture book by Ms. Idle. It is the sequel to her book Flora and the Flamingo, and it still has that marvelous, warm feeling to it (even though it's on ice ;) )! Ms. Idle’s illustrations are beautiful, realistic and makes the reader feel the flow of the skaters. The colors in the book are pretty much just shades of blue and it adds to the whole wintery feeling of the book. I love the story of friendship that it tells through its' illustrations. The flaps are fun to flip, and really give the effect of the characters swishing across the ice. Flora is a wonderful character. I like that she is not "princessy" (if that is a word). She looks like a regular little girl and that is a good image. The ending is fantastic!
