by Lori DoodySure, she was wooly.
Lana the llama lives in the farmyard with all of her sheep friends. She loves being part of their flock, but she knows that she doesn't fit in—her legs and neck are much too long, and her 'baa' is very baaad. Lana does her best to look like the other sheep, unti one day a bully arrives, and Lana has to stand up for herself and her friends.
