Meet Dharma

Dharma’s quirky character tells a great story, encouraging the reader to embrace their quirks and uniqueness through reading books. Dharma’s adventures will communicate the message that reading books will teach children important lessons that can be useful later in life and the importance of staying true to oneself.

Join Macca the Alpaca

Macca the Alpaca loves splashing in puddles and gives the very best cuddles. He meets Harmer who is a tall, strong and woolly (but not always so friendly) Llama. When a friendly Alpaca comes face-to-face with a not so friendly Llama there is “Llama Drama”. Along the way, they discover the differences that separate them also bring them together. A story of friendship, acceptance, and the value of being yourself.
