Macca the alpaca's days were happy and carefree until -- drama! -- a llama. In this adorable, quirky picture book, Macca the alpaca loves splashing in puddles and gives the best cuddles. But when he bumps into a big bullying llama named Harmer (who's no charmer), Macca must prove the value of smarts and kindness.

Praise for Macca the Alpaca:
"Featuring clean lines, vibrant colors, and the potagonists' dramtically distinct facial expressions, Cosgrove's art drives home the unmistakable message of this snappy readaloud: hugs, not shoves."--Publishers Weekly
