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!

PreS-KâWhen the new neighbors stop by for a visit, Mama reminds Llama Llama and Nelly Gnu to share. The two youngsters get along well until Nelly plays with Llama Llama's most cherished toy, and a brief scuffle results in Fuzzy Llama's arm being torn off. Not to worry, the toy and friendship are soon mended, leaving everyone anticipating the next playdate. Dewdney's large paintings are bright, bold, and expressive. This picture book will be a pleasure to share with friends, old and gnu.âLaura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
