Llama Llama is sitting alone, playing with trains, trucks, and planes, when the doorbell rings. Who can it be? Mrs. Gnu, the new neighbor, has arrived with her two kids. And Mama Llama wants little Llama to share his toys!

Llama Llama's not so sure he likes that idea. After all, these are his blocks and puzzles. But Nelly Gnu isn't so bad, and playing together is fun…until she tries to play with Fuzzy Llama—little Llama's favorite stuffed animal. Will this playdate turn into a dolly drama disaster?

Warmly addressed and wonderfully resolved, this relatable childhood challenge will strike a chord with young audiences everywhere.

About this Series

Focusing on everyday dilemmas familiar to preschoolers (and their parents), the stories in this series have a comforting way of finding gentle resolutions.

Llama Llama is a thoughtful, sensitive little guy who doesn't always know how to share, shop, or go to sleep without a fuss. Luckily, he's got a reassuring mama who's always there to support and help guide him. Whether he's melting down at the supermarket or worrying about his first day of school, Mama shows Llama Llama that patience, love, and understanding make any situation better.

With paint-on-canvas illustrations and perfectly paced rhymes, this series speaks to the charm and challenges of the preschool years.
