Reviews for Adventures of Marco Flamingo in the Jungle


Horn Book Guide Reviews 2012 Spring
On his birthday, Marco Flamingo gets an invitation to visit his friend, E. E. Elephant. After a storm at sea (irrelevant to the plot), Marco arrives in the jungle and meets all the animals. And that's it. This barely passes for a story, in either English or Spanish. The illustrations just miss displaying enough character or charm to overcome the weak text. [Review covers these titles: The Adventures of Marco Flamingo in the Jungle and The Adventures of Marco Flamingo in the Jungle / Las aventuras de Marco Flamenco en la jungla.]
