tucked into the foothills of the Rockies lies the charming village of Lumby, where quirky but tolerant townsfolk usually make the best of any situation. Not a week goes by without some humorous mayhem occurring under the watchful eyes of the mayor, sheriff, and, of course, the town mascot, Hank, a pink flamingo who thinks he's a bald eagle...
How Lumby has come to host a hot air balloon festival is a long story, but the town's residents are jumping right into preparations. But in the Lumby tradition, it won't all be blue skies and smooth sailing..."
I found this, the third book in Fraser’s Lumby Series, Just as funny as the first two. From the Sheriffs complaints listed in the local paper, include complaints about missing clothing from the sporting goods mannequin, the baby chicks that keep appearing at the feed store, the cows grazing in the town park and pink plastic flamingo who some think should run for mayor, and others say that he is lusting after their geese, or want to eat the fish from their pond. You’ll want to find out about Pam, the owner of the inn learning to use a tractor to excavate a pond, and the mishaps and practical jokes that happen at the balloon prototype trials. You will also meet the two visitors from Indonesia, one of whom excites the townspeople with thoughts of buying an exotic island, and the extremely shy, but talented wife of the popular bar owner.
You will also reunite with friends from previous books like the monks of Saint Cross and the two local juvenile pranksters who are always coming up with new schemes.
