Llama Llama, morning light.
Feeling yucky, just not right.
Down to breakfast.
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. By lunchtime, though, he's beginning to feel a tiny bit better. But now someone else has the sneezes . . . Mama! And who will help her feel better? Why, Llama Llama, of course! Anna Dewdney's fun-to-read rhymes are sure to help children and their parents get through those under-the-weather days.

"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
