Llama Glamarama

Orchard. Jun. 2021. 32p. Tr $14.99. ISBN 9781338736182.
PreS-K–Green’s (Alex in Wonderland) debut picture book is about a llama living a secret life. Larry’s love of dancing causes him to run away from home, but when he encounters others like him at the Llama Glamarama, he gathers up the courage to go back to the farm and reveal to the others his secret. The subsequent truths that are revealed add humor to this story about self-acceptance. Parsons ends the story with a dynamic dance scene where everyone shows their true colors in a variety of ways.
VERDICT Make room on your shelves for the story of these llamas; more Footloose than a coming out party, this may inspire children to test their own “limits.”
