Meet a flamingo of a different stripe!
“Mama, why are we pink?” asks an irrepressible and ever-curious young flamingo named Sylvie. When she learns that it's due to the little pink brine shrimp they eat, Sylvie takes the maxim “You are what you eat!” to a whole new level. Her new diet leads to some very interesting new looks—from scarlet to stripey to positively purple! Like Leo Lionni's chameleon in A Color of His Own, Sylvie eventually comes to learn that being yourself is the best thing to be—though with her own flair!
