Things llamas like: Snaffling cherry brandy, Easter eggs, and the Radio Times. Curling up in ‘tea-cosy’ position by the fire.
Orbiting, helicoptering, and oompahing. Locking victims in the lavatory. Things llamas dislike:Being adopted mother to an orphaned lamb.
Invitations to star on Blue Peter. Snowdonia’s rainfall. The dark.
Ruth Ruck’s family live on a Welsh mountain farm, no strangers to cow pats on the carpet and nesting hens in the larder. When dark days strike, they embark on a farming experiment to cheer them all up – but raising a baby llama proves more of an adventure than expected . Reissued with a new foreword by John Lewis-Stempel, Along Came a Llama is a delightful 1970s farming classic: a charming, witty potrait of country life that will warm the hearts of animal lovers everywhere.
