Llama Llama Time to Share

Anna Dewdney. Viking, $17.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-670-01233-6

The sixth title in the bestselling Llama Llama series has the “Gnu” neighbors coming over for a visit. With Llama Llama’s toys fair game for Nelly Gnu, his sharing skills are put to the test: “Oh, disaster! Dolly drama!/ Nelly Gnu has Fuzzy Llama!/ He’s not hers! This isn’t fair!/ Llama doesn’t like to share!” A subsequent tug of war results in a lost arm for Llama’s doll, but Mama Llama saves the day as the two playmates learn to collaborate. Once again, Dewdney conveys a highly relatable source of llama drama with warmth and authentically childlike characters. Ages 3–up. Agent: Deborah Warren, East West Literary Agency. (Sept.)
