Don't miss this local kids book: Sue the Mingo!

Author W.J. Smith talks about his book: "The story is about a flamingo named Sue who wonders what it would be like if her feathers were colored anything but pink! Sue was inspired by my daughter. She has always loved flamingos. (She actually has always loved pink, and after our first trip to the zoo, fell in love with the pink birds, which she called “mingo’s”!) So at our house, “mingo” became a word that we use very, very often!
