Sneezing birds, complaining flamingos, warrior Vikings and radioactive cats! All these entertaining characters and a host of child-friendly themes are found in the pages of Floyd the Flamingo and His Flock of Friends, a lively, appealing book of poetry that should find its way onto the bookshelf of every family. Catchy rhymes and clever word-play make this an engaging, amusing read under a quilt, in the bath or under a tree.
Themes: animals, nonsense poems, funny

"Good books of humourous poetry for young children are rare, but Floyd the Flamingo by Tiffany Stone can be counted among this exclusive company...Stone has a delightful sense of the ridiculous" Winnipeg Free Press
“In a world that largely makes no sense, making nonsense makes sense. Stone's finger-snapping, toe-tapping verse is witty, reflective and wise. It dances off the page, straight to the heart of any reader.” Sheree Fitch, author of 'If I Had a Million Onions'
