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!--from the publisher

"On Friday Llama will destroy the world."
This is the story of what happens everyday before Friday. We get to see how each day unfolds and contributes to the final denouement. (Kids who are reading this, denouement is a French word for "the end" or "the finish.")
Monday is perfect for eating cake..... all the cake. You can imagine what happens when you eat all the cake. That leads to Tuesday when Llama puts on his dancing pants. His dancing pants? Yep....and we all know what happens when you eat allllll the cake and then try to put on your dancing pants.
Kids will delight in the choices that Llama makes. Plenty of mistakes and poor choices all lead to the dark finale. Yet, the best part of the book remains. What does happen after the world comes to the end? What does the after part look like? What happens to Llama and what would happen to you?
Hilarity and exceptional use of the word "dat." Fun for all.
