About the Author
Anna Dewdney was a teacher, mother, and enthusiastic proponent of reading aloud to children. She continually honed her skills as an artist and writer and published her first Llama Llama book in 2005. Her passion for creating extended to home and garden and she lovingly restored an 18th century farmhouse in southern Vermont. She wrote, painted, gardened, and lived there with her partner, Reed, her two daughters, two wirehaired pointing griffons, and one bulldog. Anna passed away in 2016, but her spirit will live on in her books.


Praise For Llama Llama Home with Mama

"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
