He’s anxious about his first day back at school but maybe, with some help from his friends and Mama Llama, going back to school will be fun after all!
Anna Dewdney passed away in September 2016, at the age of fifty, from cancer. A teacher, mother, and enthusiastic proponent of reading aloud to children, she continually honed her skills as an artist and writer and published her first Llama Llama book in 2005. Her passion for creating extended to home and garden, and she lovingly restored an eighteenth century farmhouse in southern Vermont. She wrote, painted, gardened, and lived there with her partner, Reed, her two daughters, two wirehaired pointing griffons, and one bulldog. Anna was a warm-hearted, wonderful, wise soul who will be forever missed, but whose spirit lives on in her books.
Reed Duncan is a former reading instructor, English teacher, and school administrator. He lives in the old Vermont farmhouse that he and Anna restored together. Reed was Anna’s longtime partner and is the director of the Anna E. Dewdney Literary Trust.
JT Morrow is an award-winning illustrator who lives in a seaside community just south of San Francisco. He is best known for his ability to paint in the style of famous artists’ work ranging from Rembrandt to Norman Rockwell. He is honored to continue the legacy of Anna Dewdney.
