In this frisky companion to When Your Lion Needs a Bath and When Your Elephant Has the Sniffles, it’s school picture day and a llama’s unkempt mane needs help. The animal’s young owner chases down his pet, hoses it, and untangles its hair with a rake. In a sequence bound to earn giggles, the boy considers potential llama hairstyles, which Wiseman depicts in wry cartoons (“How about a Mohawk? That does look good! But who has an hour a day for styling?”). The llama’s expressions, which range from blank stares to total bewilderment, are worth their weight in llama wool. Ages 2–4.
