Llama Destroys the World

Llama Destroys the World

Summary

Meet Llama, a true hero for the ages, who has most definitely driven a bus and who loves cake way more than you.

On Monday, Llama discovers a pile of cake, which he promptly eats.
On Tuesday, Llama squeezes into his dancing trousers, which he promptly rips.
The force of the rip creates a black hole (naturally).
By Friday, Llama will (indirectly) destroy the world.

In their debut picture book, author/illustrator team Jonathan Stutzman and Heather Fox introduce young readers to the hilarious, the oblivious, the apocalyptically adorable Llama.
So grab some cake and prepare to dance . . . because the time for Llama is nigh!

Reviews

  • Married co-creators Stutzman and Fox open this outrageous story of planetary annihilation with a prediction: "On Friday, Llama will destroy the world." The seriously silly tale then details a single week's events, beginning on Monday with Llama's consumption of "more cake than any llama should ever eat." His indulgence is merely the "first mistake" in what turns out to be a domino effect of cascading errors . . . dessert has never seemed so epic.
