Ah-choo! Uh-oh, Llama Llama's nose is feeling tickly, his throat is feeling scratchy, and his head is feeling stuffy. Back to bed, no school today for Llama Llama! Instead, he's home with Mama.

Anna Dewdney's fun-to-read rhymes are sure to help children and their parents get through those under-the-weather days.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When Llama Llama wakes up with a cold, Mama Llama feels his forehead, looks at his throat, and sends him back to bed to rest. Later, she reads Llama Llama a story and makes him some soup, but while Llama Llama is on the mend, Mama is starting to feel sick herself: "Get more tissues. Bring a cup./ Fluff a comfy pillow up./ What else could Mama Llama need?/ How about some books to read?" Dewdney's rhymes are as cozy as ever, and she captures the frustrations of both those who are ill and those who have to attend to them: "Mama coughs, and Llama yawns..../ How long can this day go on?" Readers of any age who have been there will relate. Ages 3–5. (Aug.)
From the Publisher
"Dewdney's artwork is the ideal foil to her rhyming verses—her characters' bleary, sick expressions alone are sure to elicit giggles and knowing smiles." — Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2011

"Llama is sick with a sore throat, and children who have to take 'yucky' medicine will relate to how he feels ... The story has wonderful rhyming phrases and large, colorful illustrations full of priceless facial expressions and body language." — School Library Journal, August 2011

School Library Journal
PreS—Fans of Llama Llama will want to stay home from preschool and read this with their own mamas. Llama is sick with a sore throat, and children who have to take "yucky" medicine will relate to how he feels. Llama Mama takes care of him, and just when he starts to feel better, she gets sick. He knows just what to do to make her feel better, and after rest, and a comfy pillow, the two cozy up in bed and share a book. The story has wonderful rhyming phrases and large, colorful illustrations full of priceless facial expressions and body language.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH
