Variations on a stylized green llama illustrate 17 pears…er…pairs of homophones in a board book that is a visual delight. A “pair” of llamas and a llama shaped like a “pear.” A llama on a bottom “stair” and a comically round- eyed llama caught in a “stare.” A glistening-winged llama “fairy” and a llama on a ferry. Each page spread features two sound-alike words and two droll illustrations sure to bring smiles, whether or not children are old enough to read the words. For those who are, the sly sophistication will overcome resistance to the book format. (Ages 3–9)
