"Achy, fever, stuffy head...Llama Llama back to bed." The young llama stays home from school, takes medicine, plays with toys, naps--and passes his malady on to Mama. As usual, the text is well metered, and young fans of the series will identify with the rituals of a sick day. Parents, too, will appreciate Llama Llama's recognition of his mother's needs.

When Llama Llama wakes up with a cold, Mama Llama feels his forehead, looks at his throat, and sends him back to bed to rest. Later, she reads Llama Llama a story and makes him some soup, but while Llama Llama is on the mend, Mama is starting to feel sick herself: "Get more tissues. Bring a cup./ Fluff a comfy pillow up./ What else could Mama Llama need?/ How about some books to read?" Dewdney's rhymes are as cozy as ever, and she captures the frustrations of both those who are ill and those who have to attend to them: "Mama coughs, and Llama yawns..../ How long can this day go on?" Readers of any age who have been there will relate. Ages 3–5. (Aug.)

PreS—Fans of Llama Llama will want to stay home from preschool and read this with their own mamas. Llama is sick with a sore throat, and children who have to take "yucky" medicine will relate to how he feels. Llama Mama takes care of him, and just when he starts to feel better, she gets sick. He knows just what to do to make her feel better, and after rest, and a comfy pillow, the two cozy up in bed and share a book. The story has wonderful rhyming phrases and large, colorful illustrations full of priceless facial expressions and body language.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH
