Macca the Alpaca by Matt Cosgrove. PICTURE BOOK. Scholastic, March 2020. $15. 9781338602821
BUYING ADVISORY: Pre-K, EL (K-3) - ADVISABLE
AUDIENCE APPEAL: HIGH
Macca the Alpaca lives a carefree life until Harmer the Llama comes along and bullies Macca into a contest. Harmer may pick challenges of strength, but Macca uses his brain to come out on top.
Macca is so fluffy and loveable! And he uses his brain to fight instead of being a bully. I am not as in love with the rhyme scheme, however – it doesn’t track well all the way through, so in a couple of spots it is awkward to read aloud.
