Description

*WATERSTONES WELSH BOOK OF THE MONTH*

My Family and Other Animals meets The Secret Life of Cows: this rediscovered gem tells the charming tale of how a baby llama transformed a Welsh farming family forever.

Things llamas like: Snaffling cherry brandy, Easter eggs, and the Radio Times. Curling up in 'tea-cosy' position by the fire. Orbiting, helicoptering, and oompahing. Locking victims in the lavatory.

Things llamas dislike: Being adopted mother to an orphaned lamb. Invitations to star on Blue Peter. Snowdonia's rainfall. The dark.

Ruth Ruck's family live on a Welsh mountain farm, no strangers to cow pats on the carpet and nesting hens in the larder. When dark days strike, they embark on a farming experiment to cheer them all up - but raising a baby llama proves more of an adventure than expected .

Reissued with a new foreword by John Lewis-Stempel, Along Came a Llama is a delightful 1970s farming classic: a charming, witty potrait of country life that will warm the hearts of animal lovers everywhere.

'Full of soul ... One departs this book a convinced llama-lover ... It is a guide to the future. To a good life.' John Lewis-Stempel
