Publisher’s Blurb: When young Kayden is told by his busy mother to use his head and think of something to do, he picks up his pencil to do a join-the-dots page and tumbles into a land where friendly flamingoes welcome him with, “We are never too busy for tea./ We have books laid out for three.”

Written in simple rhyming couplets that children of age four and above will enjoy reading aloud, this whimsical and charmingly-illustrated book follows Kayden and his flamingo friends up a mountain, under the sea, and off in a hot-air balloon … until Mum is ready to play with him once again.
