League of Llamas 1: The Golden Llama




Forget finding the elusive Fortnite llama or taming your Minecraft llama – 2020 is the year of the League of Llamas!

The League of Llamas (LOL) are a group of secret llama agents and they’re on a mission to save the world – if only Agent 0011 Phillipe Llamar could stop looking in the mirror at his luxurious fringe and Agent 0013 Lloyd Llamanator could resist the temptation to eat everything in his path! There’s also the thieving General Bottomburp to contend with and a mysterious lady llama in red.

Can Phillipe and Lloyd foil the evil plans of Bottomburp and his badger henchmen? The fate of the Llama Republic’s most prized relic, the Golden Llama, depends on it!

Praise for League of Llamas 1: The Golden Llama

Short chapters, large font, snappy one-liners, a ton of animal puns and fun line illustrations keep the action-charged stories moving along.

Julie Murphy, Reading Time

If you’re looking for a fun and funny chapter book to share with your kids, or for them to try on their own, definitely check out this cool new series.

Shaye Wardrop, Kids' Book Review

Aleesah’s new series is bound to be a hit with junior/middle primary readers with galloping (I’m not sure llamas actually gallop but still…) plots, high octane humour and loads of adventure.

Sue Warren, Just So Stories

Fast-paced with loads of action and humour.

Sue Mauger, Glam Adelaide

There is so much in these books to enjoy . . . They are so clever and so much fun, I have no hesitation in recommending them.

Norah Colvin, readilearn

The League of Llamas books are packed full of interesting and wonderfully flawed characters. There are amusing spy references throughout the books that are sure to keep parents engaged, and so many llama and other animal puns, that kids will be howling with laughter.

Dianne Bates, Buzz Words
