A 2014 Caldecott Honor Book In this innovative wordless picture book with interactive flaps, Flora and her graceful flamingo friend explore the trials and joys of friendship through an elaborate synchronized dance. With a twist, a turn, and even a flop, these unlikely friends learn at last how to dance together in perfect harmony. Full of humor and heart, this stunning performance (and splashy ending!) will have readers clapping for more! For more feathery fun, pick up Flora and the Penguin, Flora and the Peacocks, Flora and Friends Matching Game or, coming soon, Flora and the Chicks .
Molly Idle began her career as an artist working for DreamWorks Feature Animation, and from there she leapt into the world of children's books. She lives in Tempe, Arizona.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Flora and the flamingo Beautiful pictures, but a bit plain. There are no words to the story, yet foldout flaps are interesting. The pages basically consist of a white page with a flamingo and flora with a bit of a pink tree. Cute story though

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"
