Seriously Mum, What’s an Alpaca? by Alan Parks

Moving from England to Spain to breed alpacas might be crazy. But as Alan Parks discovered, it’s also incredibly rewarding. Seriously Mum, What’s an Alpaca? chronicles the first few years of their adventure. If it could go wrong, it probably did. Written with typical British self-deprecating humor and wit, this book is quite an enjoyable read. Some chapters end with a bit as if it was written by one of the animals and I found that weird and distracting. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys travelogues, and particularly travelogues written by British people (which are the best ones in my opinion).
