Amazon Best Books of the Month, August 2011
: Llama Llama is feeling crummy, sneezing, achy, head all stuffy. No school today for Llama, he’s sick at home in his red pajamas. As the day wears on and Llama starts feeling better, boredom sets in--along with Mama Llama’s coughs and sneezes. Llama Llama knows just what to do, bringing Mama tissues, a fluffy pillow, and books to read. Anna Dewdney’s latest is a welcome addition to her bestselling Llama Llama picture book repertoire, perfectly capturing the challenges of a little one home sick from school and the big dose of love that makes the best medicine. --Seira Wilson
"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."
