About the Author
Marion was born in Buffalo, New York. She has spent over 40 years photographing preschool children. She believes that books and reading are an important part of a child's growth and development. Reading has always been an integral part of raising her own children. As a mother, and now grandmother (Gigi to her grandchildren), she believes there is nothing like the feeling of your child snuggled up close to you while you read him or her a story. Many years ago she began reading to her children and now she continues this wondrous time with her grandchildren. Marion says: "Reading is a time to share, to laugh, to play, to discover, and to use your imagination. I am excited to offer this picture storybook to you and your child with the hope that you will be creating wonderful, long lasting memories. Also, remember to check out your local library for special children's programs."

Aubrey is a typical child; one who readers will definitely identify with. One day, she decides she wants to imagine what life would be like as a pink flamingo who has animal friends. In her imagination, she thinks about having fun with her friends, a giraffe, monkey, elephant, and zebra, at a picnic. Each brought foods that they like. All five liked the foods brought by everyone but Falicia the Flamingo (Aubrey) who brought algae that flamingos eat, but no other animal that was present. Then an alligator came and the five friends ran. The alligator saw the algae and ate it.
Children will like this story because it is a good story and because it is fun, and they will look forward as the story advances to find out what the animals thought about the algae and what happened to the alligator who ate it. Children reading the tale or having it read to them will also learn to think about the imagination.
This book was cute and had a fun way of teaching a few fun facts about it. The animals bringing their foods was really neat, but the kids were a little upset at the end; they didn’t like that poor Annie ended up running away sad, and thought it was kind of mean of the other animals. Overall, though, they enjoyed it and laughed at some of the antics involved. I liked being able to help the kids look up the location the photos were taken since the author included that info at the end, it really enriched the book as a whole and was a fun learning experience.
Bob and the Pugglepires gave it somewhere between 3.5 and 4 Stars
In this book, Aubrey imagines being a flamingo. She decides to have a picnic with her other imaginary animal friends at the lake. I enjoyed the fact that the literature font appeared to be handwritten.
The book also has fun facts about animals adding an educational touch to this story.
