Happy New Year!
I hope you all had spectacular holidays!
I was going to have a spectacular pitch pick today – two actually – but I haven’t heard back from all the pitchers… so I’m either going to post that later or wait until next Wednesday.
Meanwhile, for the sake of filling today’s space (and not because I’ve been pushed into it by a headstrong llama who desperately needs a haircut!) there’s a new llama in town!
I am so excited about this book! A lot of you are probably familiar with Daniel’s art from WHEN YOUR LION NEEDS A BATH and WHEN YOUR ELEPHANT HAS THE SNIFFLES, but he gets better with every book. The art in this one is hilarious! I just love the llama’s expressions 🙂
I owe this book a little attention, but I felt like I’d blog-toured myself and everyone else out last summer with LION, ELEPHANT and TRUCKS, and following so close on the holidays I didn’t want to impose on your good nature. So maybe I’ll think up a little something at some point, but for now, I hope you’ll just all get a chance to enjoy the book somewhere!
Here’s a little sneak peek at some of the interior art:
There’s a GoodReads giveaway for this book if you’re interested… and I think I still have a couple copies available if anyone wants one to read and review on GoodReads, Amazon, B&N, their blog, etc… Email me if you’d like one!

All llamas need haircuts. Love this whole series.
You are correct, Kathy! But NO llamas like to HAVE their haircut, so it is quite the challenge! 🙂 So glad you like the series – thank you so much!

My grandson must be part llama as he has white blond hair that tangles. Would love to share your book with him.
My son (to whom the book is dedicated!) is definitely part llama 🙂 If you want a copy to review and share with your grandson, Sue, let me know!
