“I love this book! It is a wonderful addition to the world of children’s picture books and I can’t wait to share it with the world. I laughed, I cried, and then I laughed again! Now I’m off to buy a pair of dancing pants, after I eat some cake (maybe all the cake)!”
— Jessica Osborne, E. Shaver, Bookseller, Savannah, GA

Description


Meet 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.

In their debut picture book, author/illustrator team Jonathan Stutzman and Heather Fox introduce young readers to the comical, the studious, the oblivious Llama, a picture-book hero for the ages. So grab some cake and your dancing pants and prepare for Llama Destroys the World... because THE TIME FOR LLAMA IS NIGH!
