Author Notes

Anna Dewdney was born in New York City on December 25, 1965. She received a bachelor's degree in art from Wesleyan University in 1987. Before becoming a full-time author and illustrator, she worked as a waitress, a rural mail carrier, a daycare provider, and taught at a boys' boarding school for many years.

Her children's book career began in 1994 with her artwork for The Peppermint Race by Dian Curtis Regan. She went on to illustrate other children's chapter books in the 1990s. In 2005, the first picture book she both wrote and illustrated, Llama, Llama Red Pajama, was published. Her other books include Nobunny's Perfect, Nelly Gnu and Daddy Too, Little Excavator, and 10 more books in the Llama Llama series.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Llama Llama hits the beach in this upbeat touch-and-feel story, and luckily for his mother (who Dewdney shows reading in her cover-up and sun hat underneath an umbrella), he's happy to entertain himself. Dewdney's characteristically cozy painting and versifying are evident as Llama Llama builds a sandpaper-textured sand castle ("Buckets, shovel, sand to dig./ Llama makes the castle BIG!"), splashes around with a glittery green fish, and finds a small crab by the shore (readers can catch a glimpse of themselves in the llama's mirrored sunglasses). A light diversion just right for tossing in a beach bag. Ages 3-5. (May) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
