Yasmin Shah is just like any other ten-year-old girl, with a crazy loud family, the BEST best friend ever& and a talking toy llama!
With the help of her loud guardian llama Levi, Yasmin has finally found her voice, but her mission has only just begun. She is determined to use her new-found confidence to help her friends, starting with turning Levi back into his true guardian llama form and getting him back into Seen Not Herd – the secret society of guardian llamas. What better way to prove this than by helping Yasmin’s new friend Ezra tackle the biggest challenge of all – the struggles of school life!
But it won’t be easy with Levi constantly wrecking havoc and getting Yasmin into trouble…
The second riotous outing for Yasmin and Levi see the pair facing permanent separation unless Levi can complete his latest mission successfully.
Entering Year 6 with a voice doesn’t solve Yasmin’s problems as she is still to learn how to use it properly. She struggles to explain what she wants to family, friends and teachers, but it is this skill that she now needs to master if she is to fulfil her dream of going to art club. She also need to learn when to hold her tongue too if she wants to keep her best friend.
I love Yasmin’s noisy, nosey family and their quirky home that allows for little privacy, but not as much as I love Ezra and his kindness. He is the friend we all need in our lives.
Highly illustrated throughout, with Yasmin’s comic strips telling parts of the story too, Allen Fatimaharah’s illustrations add an extra layer of comedy to this is brilliant for children looking for a funny read packed with heart, humour and a hilariously (un)helpful llama.
