Crown Books for Young Readers says; "Pinky isn't your typical flamingo. He's a real escape artist! When he sees a young girl named Penny and her class touring the zoo, Pinky feels like they're birds of a feather and decides to make a break for it. Penny is the first to spot the flamingo hiding in plain sight. One by one, she lets her friends in on Pinky's antics as he tries to blend in with the seals, the meerkats, and even the pandas.Young readers will enjoy trying to find Pinky on every spread and will be curious to discover whether he can actually fly the coop!"

As I've said - a few times - my young grandson really enjoyed - LOVED this book. It is a fun story and engages children in more than just listening as the story is read to them. The illustrations really make this book a big hit!

I'm very happy to say not only did Crown Books for Young Readers send me one copy of Pinky Got Out! to review, but they are making another copy available for me to give away (USA only). If you are over the age of 18 and would like to enter this drawing for one Pinky Got Out!which will be on June 10, 2019, please comment below to share which animal you think would make a fun - find it story . . .
