Review for Hotel Flamingo: Fabulous Feast
A wonderful and fun book in the Hotel Flamingo series. This time competitions and cooking!
In overall I did enjoy the book immensely, I loved seeing the characters again, the hotel is flourishing (and getting more popular and known), I loved the cows and I do hope they are still together despite that one thing we find out, I am happy we see some more chefs even if they have even worse egos than Le Pig. I loved finding the animal (and I found it this time I was looking for it, which wasn’t the case with the other books). I love the names for the animals and seeing all the various new animals appear and see what they like to have in their rooms or what they need to live. I loved that our girl is getting more and more comfortable with running the hotel and that she is learning more with each book.
HOWEVER. There was just one thing I was less a fan off. The fact that next to the feast… we also have a superawesome stunt pigeon… who can’t fly. I found it took a bit too much of a spotlight at times from the feast. In the end the feast was a bit lacklustre in my eyes. I would have loved to see a bit more hype, more excitement. More contestants. More food.
Plus, I do think that Lemmy should have been honest with Le Pig from the start instead of hiding things. I get that you are afraid of her, everyone is, but better to be honest than to ruin a big important something for her.
The art was fantastic and delightful (as expected given that so far the art has always been fun and colourful).
And I definitely can’t wait for the next books.
