It takes a while for the flamingo to realize that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but when the two reconcile their relationship, a double-page foldout is barely large enough to contain the joy." - Carla Kozak, San Francisco Public Library"I was entirely swept away." - Design of the Picture Book"Flora and the Flamingo is so perfect there really are no words to describe it." - Virgina Beach Public Library"Fanciful and beautiful." - Reading Today"Cinematic, comedic, and balletic."-The Horn Book Magazine, starred review"An absolute delight." - School Library Journal Extra Helping"A perfect amalgamation of wordless storytelling.. as emotional as it is visual" - Elizabeth Bird, A Fuse #8 Production, a School Library Journal Blog"
