Skinny Malinky Long Legs was delighted when she met the fun loving, flamboyant flock of long-legged flamingos at the zoo. She was no longer the odd one out amongst the animals. She loved the otters, hippos and the penguins too, but they were always teasing her about her reeeeeeally long legs. It wasn’t her fault that they couldn’t keep up when they were exploring. She always suspected that they were just jealous! Skinny Malinky Long Legs was voted for by the Forth 1 listeners after a campaign to find the best name was launched by the Boogie in the Morning breakfast show.
This brilliant winning entry was submitted by Faye Sherlock from Livingston.
