So here it is, the cover for the second book in the Llama United series – Llamas Go Large.


Llamas Go Large cover
Llamas Go Large – out May 2018


Illustrated once again by the magnificent Sarah Horne, the llamas are off to the World Cup.

The book will be published by Macmillan Children’s books in May 2018, just in time for the start of the FIFA World Cup in the summer.

Llamas Go Large is ideal for boys and girls from 7 to 13 years old, whether they like football or not. I’m sure adults with a sense of humour will enjoy it too. If you are one of those people who take themselves too seriously then it might cheer you up a bit.

Now you’ve seen the cover here’s a bit about the book:

Llama United has gone from strength to strength after their first Cup final, gaining fame and fortune along the way. Sadly the England football team is not having the same success and, with the World Cup looming, their manager, Ray Barnowl, is desperate to find a magic ingredient to beat their bitter rivals.

Friends (and llama managers) Tim and Cairo have just that ingredient and agree to loan some of Llama United’s top players. But not everything is plain sailing and, with Cairo strangely distracted by the rival team, and the llamas having trouble settling in, Tim has his work cut out for him. It seems not everybody wants to support the team with an impossible dream . . .
