Summary: Princess Pumpkin the Pocket Alpaca, the book, is an inspired and whimsical children's story for ages 4 to 7. It contains 29 full-color illustrations that tell the story of a small, rejected, impish and real-life little alpaca born too small to survive at only 5 1/2 pounds (most baby alpacas are born 15-20 pounds). Adopted by humans and raised as a Princess, she seeks out friendship from other alpacas and learns that just being yourself is the key to acceptance.
