ABOUTMeet Llama, the next great picture-book megastar, who has most definitely driven a bus and who loves tacos way more than you.

He also loves cake, and that’s where our story begins.

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

 

My Review:
Llama Destroys the World is exactly what you think. This carefree llama ignores all signs foreshadowing impending doom. The whole story is silly and distressing – but in a good way that makes you invested in what’s going on. The ending was very satisfying because it alluded to potentially more (perhaps a series about Llama? that’d be cool!).

I like this book. The kids at work loved it. They were completely engaged and had a lot to say about Llama’s actions. Definitely would recommend this book!
