Adam dreams of a new bike to ride the Vermont hills near his home. So he's shocked to discover that the stable's new occupant has hooves, not handlebars! It's Ethan Allen, the star of Adam's mother's new llama trekking business. With a llama in the family, anything can and will happen--especially when Adam sets out to double the llama trouble. "Another winning story from Hurwitz."--School Library Journal.
