Description


Welcome to the Alpactory! These wacky alpacas are here to help young readers get ready for any new experience ahead in this funny and inspiring picture book.

New experiences can be scary. It never seems like you’ll be 100% ready. 

Should Marley pack 2 pencils or 25 for the first day of school? How many pairs of underwear does Ralph need for a sleepover? 

Have no fear, the Alpactory is here to help! These alpacas will pack and pack and pack, until…WAIT! Nobody needs that much stuff! Maybe Marley and Ralph have been ready all along…

This fresh, contemporary take on Oh, the Places You’ll Go! will have readers laughing along and feeling prepared for anything.
