Pete is an alligator that thinks he is a flamingo. Since the moment he opened is eyes, he has been with flamingos. He does wonder about his four legs and his lack of feathers. Although the flamingos are very accepting of his differences, Pete is overjoyed when he meets up with "flamingos" who look just like him! This is a delightful picture book, illustrated with paper-cut collages.  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
