Once again Marco has an exciting adventure in The Adventures of Marco Flamingo in the Jungle. It is Marco’s birthday and he receives an invitation from his friend, E. E. Elephant, to visit him in the jungle. Marco has quite a harrowing boat trip across the ocean, but arrives in the jungle safely. His friend, Elephant takes him to the watering hole to cool off after his trip. Then Marco has a great time laughing with hyena, finding buried treasure with ostrich and even roaring with lion. At the end of the story there is a big surprise. Another birthday wish comes true for Marco.
