Based on the Post-Idalia True Story of “Fifi the Lost Flamingo”

Hernando Beach resident and author Seth Sjostrom is launching his children’s book Hurricane Channing and the Lost Flamingo.

Conceptually based on the real-life displaced flamingo sighted off Hernando Beach’s coastline, “Hurricane Channing and the Lost Flamingo” follows an intrepid young girl named Channing. She drags her mother along on an adventure with the intent of helping the lost flamingo dubbed “Fifi” by local residents. Can Channing and her mother help Fifi find her way back to her flock?

Working with St. Petersburg artist Michele Sjostrom, the book is filled with vibrant images of the Gulf Coast and Florida’s trademark pink flamingo.

Hurricane Channing and the Lost Flamingo launches on June 1, 2024. Seth reports this will be the first book of a long-running children’s series, with the second book already in production.
