Series: A Llama Book #2
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆
Recommend to Others?: Yes

ABOUT: Llama’s back and ready to destroy the world AGAIN… this time with his best camelid, Alpaca!

Llama loves cooking. And baking. And, above all, eating.
For breakfast, Llama makes one epic spread…as well as a big mess.
But Llama hates cleaning.
So by lunch, Llama has cooked up something really devious—an idea!—and by second lunch, Llama has cloned his most fastidious friend, Alpaca, to clean his house. And Llama doesn’t stop at just one clone.
By dinner, the alpaca clones threaten to tidy the world into utter destruction—THE ALPACALYPSE* IS HERE!
Will Llama be able to fix it all before dessert?

*That’s “apocalypse” with an alpaca—get it?

 

My Review: No one is safe from Llama (ahaha)!

Llama has to be one of the most delightful characters I’ve ever read about in a picture book. He is lovable, goofy, loves food, and is multi-talented. But Llama is also incredibly lazy, so I’m not surprised that he unintentionally unleashes an alpacalypse.

Through Fox’s endearing and hysterical art we see chaos slowly unfold as the day progresses. I liked getting to know a new character, Alpaca, who I hope will be in future books. Alpaca loves to clean and is just as interesting as Llama.

This story was one pandemonious yet humorous event that kids will enjoy reading.
