But wait--Nelly has Llama's little Fuzzy Llama! The fun turns to tears when Fuzzy Llama is ripped in two, "all because of Nelly Gnu!"

This picture book will be a pleasure to share with friends, old and gnu.-Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist In this brightly illustrated book from the Llama Llama series, new neighbors come to visit. Llama manages to share his blocks and play nicely with little Nelly Gnu, sometimes referred to as “the Gnu girl.” But when he sees her playing with his dolly Fuzzy, Llama grabs, Nelly tugs, and Fuzzy’s arm rips off. After apologies and a bit of mending, Llama and Nelly enjoy playing together again. Clearly depicting the characters’ emotions, Dewdney’s paintings bring the rhyming text to life on the page. The simplicity of the story and its timeless topic will make this a popular choice for reading aloud. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Carolyn Phelan Review Praise for Llama Llama Time to Share by Anna Dewdney: "Once again, Dewdney conveys a highly relatable source of llama drama with warmth and authentically childlike characters." — Publishers Weekly, starred review "A solid addition to the popular series for toddlers and preschoolers." — Kirkus "This picture book will be a pleasure to share with friends, old and gnu." — School Library Journal 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.
