About the Author

Susanna Leonard Hill is the award-winning author of nearly a dozen books for children, including Punxsutawney Phyllis (A Booklist Children’s Pick and Amelia Bloomer Project choice); No Sword Fighting in the House (a Junior Library Guild selection); Can’t Sleep Without Sheep (a Children’s Book of the Month); and Not Yet, Rose (a Gold Mom’s Choice Award winner). She lives in New York’s Mid-Hudson Valley with her husband, children, and two rescue dogs. She loves chocolate, animals, and being outdoors.

Daniel Wiseman likes to draw. A lot. He likes it so much, he’s made a career out of it. Usually he draws animals wearing clothes, or kids enjoying a good dance party. However, when prodded, he’s been known to draw pretty much anything else. Daniel currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri, with his beautiful wife and his equally beautiful son. When he isn’t drawing, he can usually be found doing one of these great things: perfecting his biscuit recipe, hiking up a mountain in some faraway location, singing loudly in his car, riding his bike on the mean streets of STL, or napping.

Hilarious! It's not easy convincing your llama that he needs a haircut for the school pictures. And when you finally wrangle him through the shampoo and detangling with much complaining, you have to decide which style suits him best... perm, rainbow, natural, mohawk or something else entirely. In the end, you might have to demonstrate on your own hair first... oops! School pictures will be unique this year!

It’s always a joy to read a book that appeals to both kids and adults and “When Your Llama Needs a Haircut” does that! Simultaneously sweet and humorous, the story will tickle kids’ funny bones and possibly make them re-think the next time they have a tantrum about getting tidied up for a class photo. It will also bring back memories for adults from when they were little themselves and resisting grooming and haircuts (ah, the classic bowl cut…). And, honestly, who doesn’t love llamas? Daniel Wiseman’s illustrations--bold line drawings paired with a soothing, slightly retro palette--have a fun, quirky feel that complements Susanna Hill’s amusing text. I love that the little kid is a person of color with hair as distinctive as the llama’s. The story has the right level of exuberance that lends itself well to library story time, yet is just calm enough to be suitable for bedtime reading, too. The $7.99 list price is an absolute deal for this sturdy book that is sure to become a favorite for many kids.

When I found out my friend, author Susanna Leonard Hill, was releasing a new series of board books, I offered to review one. My friends know I'm not likely to give a favorable BOOK NOOK REVIEW unless I sincerely like the book I've been given. The day WHEN YOUR LLAMA NEEDS A HAIRCUT came in the mail, I was having a very rough time at work. I thought I would give Susanna's book a quick read and then delve deeper into it at a later time. I found myself actually chuckling out loud at some of the adorable illustrations Daniel Wiseman created to compliment Susanna's cute story, like this one... It brougt me back to the days of my own youth when I tried wearing a perm myself, as well as those days of trying to tame my own son's curly locks. It is also written in a similar vein as author Laura Numeroff's "If You Give..." series which makes WHEN YOUR LLAMA NEEDS A HAIRCUT a very enjoyable read. I can't wait to read other books in the series like WHEN YOUR LION NEEDS A BATH and WHEN YOUR ELEPHANT HAS THE SNIFFLES. Young readers will laugh at the whimsical artwork and parents will find their own little ones asking to hear this delightful story "just one more time!" A great addition to any home library...
