This book is well written and the paintings by Sattler are fabulous. It is the story of a young flamingo named Sylvie. Once she finds out that she and her family and all the flamingos are pink because the shrimp they eat are pink, she decides to experiment. She soon realizes that if she eats different things she can change her color, and what fun she has trying to be different. She turns green and purple, and brown, blue red stripy and even paisley. The illustration paintings by the author are fun and funny and will make your children laugh out loud. Join Sylvie in her experiments as she tries different colors but realizes it is best to just be yourself.
