Randal's book, "Learning Perl" is the "Llama" book -- http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lperl2/
The "Camel" book is "Programming Perl, 3rd Edition", by Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen and Jon Orwant -- http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/pperl3/
"Learning Perl on Win32 Systems", the "Gecko" book, by Randal Schwartz, Erik Olson and Tom Christiansen is also a great idea if you program primarily on Windoze. Of course, if you program in Windows, ActivePerl is a must (http://www.activestate.com/ActivePerl ). ActivePerl is Perl for Windows -- http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/lperlwin
