The Flying Flamingo SIsters ~ Review

The Flying Flamingo Sisters
By Carrie Seim
Narrated by Gabriel Vaughan, Bill Andrew Quinn, Jessica Almasy, Carrie Seim, Kevin Pariseau, Dina Pearlman, and Khristine Hvam


Fans of Lemony Snicket will appreciate this book. But it is better in that it isn't quite as dark. The story moves at a good pace. I love the Flamingo Sisters who are attempting to find their missing parents while avoiding their dastardly uncle. Yes, there is an evil uncle and he doesn't approve of girls being pilots. Worse he is after the legendary family treasure that must be found within the next few days (weeks time isn't fully explained here) or it will be lost forever.

The narration is good with a cast to portray the different characters. This is perfect for family listening and is just a few hours long. I will say that how it ends, one can only hope that there will be a sequel furthering the flying adventures of the Flamingo sisters. This is a fun read and one that one will relisten to just to look for clues that may have been missed the first time through.

About the Book:
By Audible Originals
Length: 2 hrs and 13 mins

This hilarious, heartfelt, and soaring adventure will delight fans of The Goonies and Indiana Jones. Performed as a 1930s radio drama, it’s bursting with humor for all ages, orchestral scoring, and some of the most talented voices on Broadway.

When their ace pilot parents (and adorable puppy) mysteriously disappear over the Pacific, the Flamingo Sisters—Flo, Faye, and Franny—escape the clutches of their evil Uncle Freidrich (who believes girls should never pilot aeroplanes) and join a flying circus. They soon become a smashing sensation, performing aerial acrobatics, wing walking, and other death-defying feats in a dazzling biplane outfitted with three cockpits.

But when the girls discover a mysterious map—which may lead them to the long-lost Flamingo family fortune—their dastardly uncle follows them on a thrilling chase in the skies. The Flying Flamingo Sisters must use wits, courage, and derring-do to solve secret codes, trek through spooky jungles, and save their parents. Not to mention themselves!
