Synopses & Reviews
Yucky music, great big feet.
Ladies smelling way too sweet.
Look at knees and stand in line.
Llama Llama starts to whine.
Does any child like to go shopping? Not Llama Llama! But Mama can't leave Llama at home, so off they go to Shop-O-Rama. Lots of aisles. Long lines. Mama is too busy to notice that Llama Llama is getting m-a-d! And before he knows it, he's having a full-out tantrum! Mama quickly calms him down, but she also realizes that they need to make shopping more fun for both of them. Parents and children are sure to recognize themselves in this fun-to-read follow-up to the popular Llama Llama Red Pajama.
"The engagingly expressive and emotive protagonist of Llama Llama Red Pajama has another reason to be grumpy in this droll follow-up. Having survived bedtime in the earlier tale, Llama Llama here faces another childhood bugaboo: a shopping expedition. None too happy when Mama Llama drags him away from his toys, the overall-clad youngster discovers there's little to like at Shop-O-Rama: Yucky music, / great big feet./ Ladies smelling way too sweet./ Look at knees and stand in line./ Llama Llama starts to "whine". Forced to try on itchy clothing and wait while Mama deliberates over food items, her increasingly disgruntled progeny decides, It's no fun at Shop-O-Rama./ Llama Llama/ "MAD at Mama"! Sitting in the shopping cart, he furiously throws would-be purchases on the ground, creating toddler-tickling mayhem and eliciting from Mama the tales reassuring message: Please stop fussing, little llama./ No more of this "llama drama"./ I think shopping's boring, too/ but at least I'm here with "you". After helping her offspring clean up the mess, Mama holds his hand as they push the cart together, finishing their shopping as a team. After Mama (in a parent-pleasing diversion) remembers where she left the car, they drive off (Say good-bye to Shop-O-Rama) and are then seen happily holding ice cream cones (Llama Llama/ "loves" his mama). Snappy rhythm, pleasing rhyme and large-scale art — plus the easily identifiable experience depicted — make this an involving read-aloud, one that will leave kids and parents hoping Llama has many more adventures ahead. Ages 2-up."(Sept.) Publishers Weekly (Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information)
"Children will giggle at Dewdney's rhythmic rhymes. The inviting, oversized paintings are bold and colorful, and Llama Llama's priceless expressions carry the emotional arc of the story to its gentle conclusion." School Library Journal
