By Jane Porter

A bold and colourful picture book with a heart-warming story about always being yourself.

Arnold blends right in with his bright pink flamingo family. Then a growling gang of lions stops by and tells Arnold he should be more lion-like, just like them. Poor Arnold tries but misses his old life. But then his flamingo family are threatened by an unwelcome visitor. Is this the moment when Arnold will find his roar?

'With themes of belonging, family, identity, being yourself and finding your voice, this zappy tale with its superbly expressive, predominantly candyfloss pink and yellow animal images standing out starkly against a white background, offers plenty to enjoy, to ponder upon and to discuss.' Red Reading Hub

'“Arnold the lion is pink, as is his family of flamingos. He feels he fits right in until a pride of lions meets him at the waterhole and tried to tell him ow a king of the jungle should behave.”' Nursery World

'Feels like an instant classic in the making, a lovely moral tale with a feelgood end.' Read It Daddy
