Flora and the Flamingo

Flora and the Flamingo
by  Molly Idle
San Francisco, Calif. : Chronicle Books, c2013
unpaged, picture book

Flora, in her pink swimsuit, flippers, and swim cap, greatly admires the graceful flamingo. At first she tries to be discreet, but the flamingo is not flattered by the attention and tries to deter Flora's aping ways. Eventually, the two form a friendship and practice beautiful dance moves together.  The stunning illustrations display such personality in the two characters that words are truly not necessary. This gorgeous wordless picture book is sure to delight girls of all ages.
