Children's Alpaca Story Books

Lindy Smith, of Clifden Alpacas, has now published 2 children’s story books featuring the loveable character Archie the Black Alpaca.

‘Archie’s Haircut’ is the story of a young cria adapting to life on the farm and his first experience of shearing.

In the second tale, ‘Archie’ Big Win’, the popular little alpaca realizes there are many ways of winning. He is helped by his many farmyard friends including the other alpacas and Benji, the Belted Galloway calf.

Both books are beautifully illustrated in full colour with a soft cover and are wonderful read aloud stories for young children.

Lindy and her husband Bill breed black huacaya alpacas on their property in West Gippsland and sell the books on farm and through their website for $10.00 including GST. (Postage and handling additional). The books are also available from selected retail outlets (including alpaca farm shops).

‘Archie’ can be viewed on the Clifden website www.clifden.com.au and his adventures can also be followed on Facebook.
