Title: Franky The Thirsty Flamingo
Author: Wanda Luthman
Illustrator: Mara Reitsma
Available on Amazon
Genre: Fiction: Children's/Biology/Environment
The environment! A passion of mine. How could I not love this story of a young flamingo who must learn the ways of the world, including what to ink and drink. This slender book tells about his difficulty in finding proper water to drink. Encouraging and positive, his story is told in perfectly metered rhyme that will appeal to any child. It would make a wonderful addition to the gift shops at libraries and national monuments and parks where flamingoes abound.
I also appreciate how the illustrator let her topic influence her color choices. She helps make the book sing Florida and Sunshine.
