Publisher: Chicken House

Patrick is teased at school and doesn’t like being different. He packs his rucksack and goes to Africa to join the flamingos.

Patrick soon discovers he can’t be a flamingo. He hasn’t got a long neck for eating, he can’t stand on one leg and he certainly can’t fly.

He returns home to a big welcome from his friends and he tells them about his adventures. He isn’t teased any more and is content to be pink.
