Everyone likes flamingos. Or at least that’s what Hans-Peter, the titular hero of this wonderful new flamingo book, thinks. However, he’s about to find out that life isn’t always quite that simple – and that the journey to acceptance starts from within.
In A Very Special Flamingo – written by Thomas George with illustrations by Sandra Underkicher – you can follow Hans-Peter from his home on the cold river, in the grey town, on the green island… to a place he can finally call home.

Who Wrote this Flamingo Book?
…is an author who, like Hans-Peter the flamingo, once lived by a cold river, in a grey town, on a green island.
Similarly, he likes fish, seagulls, and looking at his reflection. However, he has no strong feelings about ducks.
…is a designer who largely compensates for the author’s inability to draw straight lines.
As an Austrian, she finds it difficult to conceptualise the sea at all. Despite this, she draws an excellent flamingo. However, her favorite character in the flamingo book isn’t a flamingo at all… it’s Doris the seagull.
