A beautifully illustrated tale celebrating the wisdom and experience of old age, with a timely message about community and helping each other through difficult times. From the talented creator of the award-winning picture book Little One.
Wise old flamingo Bibi has been with her flock for as long as anyone can remember. Follow her journey in this beautifully illustrated celebration of old age and community from the talented creator of the award-winning picture book Little One.
When the lake dries up, the flamingos are forced to leave their babies behind and fly away to find water. Bibi bravely volunteers to guide the baby flamingos on foot across the barren salt flats to reunite them with their parents. But when one little flamingo starts to fall behind, Bibi teaches everyone a valuable lesson about community and the importance of being there to help one another in times of need.
With stunning charcoal illustrations and just a hint of pink, Jo Weaver brings this heartwarming tale of love and respect for the elderly to life.
Jo Weaver had a career as a support worker in the non-profit sector before retraining as an illustrator. She completed an MA degree in Children's Book Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art in 2014, where she discovered a love of working in charcoal. Shortly afterwards she was shortlisted for the Association of Illustrator's newcomer's Awards.
Jo lives with her husband and two sons in Scotland and when she's not drawing you'll find her tramping about in the wild outdoors.
