Zac and Paco don't want to play with Fanfan, the MUCH TOO pink flamingo. Zac is a black-and-white zebra and Paco is a black-and-white panda. They say that pink gives them a headache and doesn't go well with black and white; that pink is for babies and for princesses. This makes Fanfan really sad. His big sister tells him NO! they're wrong, cotton candy is pink, loukums and strawberry ice-cream are pink. Ludo the lemur says if we didn't have pink, we wouldn't have shrimp or salmon or pigs, nor roses, nor orchids...

A wonderful story of learning to appreciate who one is.
