About the Book.
A girl, a potato, and a very sad flamingo star in this charming sequel to the New York Times Notable Children’s Book I’m Bored from comedian Michael Ian Black and celebrated illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi.
Everyone feels sad sometimes—even flamingos. *Sigh” When Flamingo announces he’s feeling down, the little girl and Potato try to cheer him up, but nothing seems to work. Not even dirt! (Which usually works for Potato.)
Michael Ian Black and Debbie Ridpath Ohi, whose “smart cartoony artwork matches Black’s perfect comic timing” (The New York Times Book Review), have paired up again to showcase that there’s nothing wrong with feeling sad sometimes, and that sometimes that best way to be a friend is just be there when your friend is down.
