Macca the Alpaca

by Matt Cosgrove

Perfect for fans of Oi, Frog! and You Can’t Take anElephant on the Bus.

Macca is an alpaca.

He loves splashing in puddles, and he gives the very best cuddles.

Harmer is a llama.

He’s tall, strong and woolly, but he’s also a BIG BULLY.

When a friendly alpaca comes face-to-face with a meanie llama,he soon realises that LLAMA DRAMA lies ahead. But, who knows, perhaps the differences that separate the two will be exactly what brings them together in the end.

A heartwarming story of friendship, acceptance and the value of being yourself.

About Matt Cosgrove

Matt Cosgrove hails from Sydney, Australia. His passion for the interplay between prose and pictures has seen some slight detours in his career path though—including Creative Director at Australia’s number one fashion magazine Marie Claire, Lecturer in Comic Art at the University of Western Sydney, and a tragically short-lived stint as one of the guys who drew the animations for the television show, Burgo’s CatchPhrase! However, despite these dalliances, (Don’t judge— he had a mortgage to pay!) his heart has always belonged only truly to books. As a child, his love for the medium was sparked by the brilliance, and naughtiness, of Roald Dahl (Matt could recite Revolting Rhymes by memory) and Raymond Briggs (Every single week Matt would re-borrow Fungus the Bogeyman from the school library). And if he didn’t have a book in his hand, he had a pencil, practicing drawing. While other kids played with their Masters of the Universe figurines, Matt posed them in scenes and then sketched them. Now, as a father, Matt’s work is heavily influenced by his children, simultaneously his most enthusiastic supporters and most ruthless critics.
