Hotel Flamingo: Carnival Caper
‘Truly heartwarming and uplifting. I’d love to book a room there myself’ Philip Ardagh
‘Hotel Flamingo is bursting with charm, friendship and fabulous characters!’ Laura Ellen Anderson
It’s the last of the autumn days before winter sets in, which means it’s time for CARNIVAL! And Hotel Flamingo, the sunniest hotel in town, is all set to join the party. Animal Boulevard is a riot of colour, and every establishment is preparing a float for the annual procession. Anna is determined to win the prize for Hotel Flamingo for the best display, despite rival hotel the Glitz having won it every year since the Carnival began.
Meanwhile Hotel Flamingo is welcoming its usual array of eclectic guests. Wilbur the sheepdog, who has no home, and needs a place to stay and someone to give him a chance at a new start. Mr and Mrs Kunkworth, a pair of skunks, who are rather anxious, and Mac Macaw the parrot, who is quite the opposite … Things start to get complicated, though, when Anna gets some very unexpected guests – the mega-famous band The Nocturnal Animals! How will she keep their stay a secret while also making sure her guests don’t get kept awake by the band’s night-time practising and antics?
Then on top of this, disaster strikes! The rainy season comes early, and high winds and torrential rain lash down across the Boulevard. Can Anna save the Carnival, the band and the day?

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. -- Philip Ardagh
