Franz-Ferdinand The Dancing Walrus

Where there’s a walrus, there’s a way!

Bull walrus Franz-Ferdinand doesn’t like to move. But when he sees a flock of ice gliding flamingos dance, he discovers his love of ballet. When he decides he wants to join the graceful dance troupe, no one believes it’s possible. Will Franz-Ferdinand prove them wrong?

Rainbow Fish creator Marcus Pfister’s humorous new story strengthens our belief in our own dreams.

Pfister’s (The Rainbow Fish) chatty, unhurried text has the feel of impromptu narration from a family member, and Franz-Ferdinand is a marvelous creation—a wrinkly, speckled gray behemoth who exudes lighter-than-air grace and joy as he dances amid the pink flamingoes and dappled sea ice.
