Every creature on Earth
has a dance all its own,
but none so well-known
as the flamingo’s flamenco.

A flamenco-dancing flamingo struts and swaggers, certain that he is the best dancer in the animal kingdom. From hip hopping hippos to tap dancing tigers, each animal finds their own jungle boogie, and Flamingo soon discovers that no two dancers are the same—and that's okay!

(synopsis from Goodreads)

The premise of this book is a bit weak. The message is obviously to be yourself, but the real appeal is seeing all the different animals doing their own styles of dance.

The illustrations are the real winner here, and will likely appeal to even the youngest children. The text is nothing special. Apparently, nothing compares to a flamingo's flamenco... but dance your own dance anyway.

Check this one out for the illustrations, but don't expect much in the way of a story.

Premise: 2/5

Writing: 3/5
Illustrations: 4/5
Originality: 3/5

Enjoyment: 3/5
