Every once in a while a children’s book unequivocably grabs your attention The first time you set your eyes on the book cover, you fall in love with Sylvie. Who is Sylvie? A human being, a cat, a dog? No, she’s a pink flamingo.

Her mama says she is pink because she eats pink shrimps. She decides to experiment with other foods and becomes like a chameleon. She turns brown when she eats chocolate ice cream or green  when she eats a palm leaf, or a delightful shade of purple when she eats grapes, etc. etc…  In the end, she goes back to her own shade of happy pink.

The illustrations are very amusing and colorful. The writing is just as enjoyable! Kudos to Jennifer Sattler for such an entertaining little book.
