About the Story

Macca the Alpaca is small, kind and friendly. His days are easy and carefree until he accidentally bumps head-first into Harmer the llama. Harmer is big, unkind and never, ever friendly…Can little Macca find a way to teach Harmer a lesson he’ll never forget?

Macca the Alpaca tells the story of a sweet, small alpaca who takes on a big, bully llama (named Harmer!) in a David and Goliath tale that shows brains can triumph over brawn and the importance of kindness. With simple rhyming text and hilarious illustrations, kids will love this story from author/illustrator Matt Cosgrove.

Told delightfully by TV presenter Jimmy Rees, this funny story will give you the giggles and shares an important message about bullying.
