It's Penny's birthday, and her secret wish is for Pinky the flamingo to come to her party. Unfortunately, flamingos are supposed to stay at the zoo.

Praise For Pinky Crashes the Party!

"Illustrations are bright and fun in a simple cartoon style. The creativity in the themed decorations and visual plot embellishments means the majority of the story details occur within the pictures, while the minimal text supplies only the barest skeleton. The mild silliness in this sequel to Portis and Richmond’s Pinky Got Out! (2019) will appeal to young animal lovers like Penny." —Kirkus Reviews
