Welcome to Hotel Flamingo: the sunniest hotel in town!
Alex Milway is a full-time children's books author-illustrator and screenwriter. His most recent book series Pigsticks and Harold (Walker Books) was optioned by Jam Media, and presented at the 2014 Cartoon Forum. He is the founder of the This Book Is Funny! children's book scheme working with schools and libraries and has huge experience running children's workshops around the UK, in China and the US.
It's near-impossible to chose a favourite character in Alex
Milway's utterly charming Hotel Flamingo; a marvellous menagerie,
where the chef is a pig, the handyman a giraffe and where
cockroaches are welcome paying guests. The new girl owner Anna's
bid to return the hotel to its former glory and to outshine the
nearby Glitz, is a tale of co-operation, ingenuity and fun, all
brought to life in Milway's pitch-perfect words and pictures. Funny
though it is -- and it's certainly that -- it's also truly
heartwarming and uplifting. I'd love to book a room there myself.

Hotel Flamingo is the perfect book for the young. With notions of inclusivity, ideas of never giving up and the belief of working together has made this one of our current favourite reads. We're off now to pick up the next one in the series, Hotel Flamingo : Holiday Heatwave! -- Vanessa * Babyccino Kids *
