About the Book

When Lucy, the llama travels all the way from Peru to Scotland, she has no idea what to expect from her new job as guard llama for a herd of sheep in the Scottish Highlands on the banks of Loch Ness. Lucy loves sheep, and she soon finds out who her friends are, but it takes her much longer to learn to deal with her nemesis, who is the instrument that sends her off on an incredible, fast-moving adventure that results in a modern-day legend. Meet Angus MacGregor, the kind, but sometimes irascible farmer and shepherd who treats his livestock more like pets than he’d like to admit. Victor, the fish, is a whole new breed - a sassy, “hip-talking” wiseguy with a heart of gold and a penchant for offering free advice. Lucy, the Loch Ness Llama teaches young readers to embrace their differences, follow their dreams, and that kindness to others always wins out in the end.
