Is it a golf club? Is it a garden gnome? No. It's Mingo the flamingo!

From author-illustrator team Pete Oswald and Justin K. Thompson comes a hilarious picture book about a flamingo named Mingo who is ready to fly but gets lost from the rest of the flock during a terrible storm. To make matters worse, when he crashes, he completely forgets who he is and where he belongs. With the help and training from some new friends, he must find the strength to make it back home and reunite with his family.

Mingo the Flamingo's dynamic and artistic style and black-and-white illustrations will be sure to please fans of The Blobfish Book and other strange and wonderful creatures.
