  • Imaginative and enjoyable

    Anna Dupont has inherited Hotel Flamingo, the sunniest hotel in town, from her Great Aunt Mathilda who left it to her in her will. Upon arrival Anna is disappointed to see that the place is grey and peeling, the windows are cracks and that there are cobwebs and dust everywhere. There are also only two employees and there have been no guests for the last three years. Anna sets about cleaning the hotel up and hires lots of staff including a maid who is allergic to dust and a rude, but very talented chef who wants to do everything his way. She also hires a handy-giraffe to fix the pool and other maintenance jobs. Her first paying customers are a family of cockroaches that no other hotel will allow to stay as they are insects. Soon though the owner of the local hotel that put them out of business three years ago with his glitzy, huge hotel, wants to see for himself what is happening and he isn’t pleased. There’s also a hotel inspector whose come to take a look. If he decides the place isn’t good enough he can shut the Hotel Flamingo down again. Can Anna and the staff make the place presentable and keep all the new guests happy? Hotel Flamingo is the first in a new children’s series from author Alex Milway. I’ve loved Alex’s books in the past so I couldn’t wait to start on this one. The first thing that hits you as you open the title page is how beautifully illustrated the inside is. The vibrant colours are inviting and the images bring the story to life. The hotel is situated on Animal Boulevard and is a grand hotel with fifty rooms over five floors and includes a restaurant, penthouse suite, pool, and a spa. The staff, with the exception of Anna, are all different animals and they all enjoy their jobs, especially Mr. T Bear and Lemmy the Ringtailed Lemur who have never left the place and are now happy to have the hotel back up and running. The story is very imaginative and enjoyable and I can see this book being a big hit with the kids. It shows with hard work just what can be achieved if you all pull together.

    Thanks for your feedback!
