Puffin Books, 2020. ISBN: 9781760894160. 118pp.
(Age: Year 3-6) How many gags can you make about llamas in a James Bond style llama spy adventure? Lots!
Phillipe Llamar LOL (League of Llamas Agent 0011) uses SPIT (Space Precision Initial Test) technology to try to thwart the enemy badgers, in particular General Bottomburp.
He is aided by fellow agent Lloyd Llamanator and meets a mysterious lady llama dressed in a red gown (llama in red).
No prob-llama! Except Lloyd is obsessed with eating and Phillipe loves to constantly look at his beautiful fringe.
Phillipe's assignment is to retrieve the prestigious 'Golden Llama' statue taken by General Bottomburp and he must use all of his highly skilled techniques and equipment, while driving around in his llamaborghini.
This is a fun, humorous 118 page novel about secret llama agents and their exploits. The text is interspersed with drawings and these stories will appeal to students in years 3-6.
The League of Llama series has a second title in print Llama possible and 2 more novels are coming soon, Undercover Llamas and Rogue Llama.
Darlison's previous books include picture fiction Little meerkat and Emerald, the green turtle's tale and novels, Running from the tiger and Ash Rover: Keeper of the Phoenix.
This would be a fun addition to any school library.
A short book trailer is available.
