Llama Destroys the World
In this debut picture novel, Jonathan Stutzman and Heather Fox introduce the reader to a comical and insensible Llama.
You will meet Llama, who has once driven a bus and loves tacos than everybody else. He also likes cakes, and now that’s where the story begins.
On a Monday, Llama finds a pile of cake that he decides to eat, while on Tuesday, he squeezes into his pants and rips them.
He was so full of the cake, and the pants couldn’t fit; since he couldn’t dance without the dancing pants as they made his butt look sensational.
The force of the rip ends up creating a black hole, and by the time it’s Friday, Llama will destroy the world.

When you spell the word Llama backward, it becomes Amall, and this is a name well known for ancient Toltec god also referred to as the great devourer.
Nostradamus had predicted that once Amall eats a disappointing lemon meringue pie, he would become furious. Instead of eating lemon meringue, Llama starts eating a cake, and instead of becoming angry, it’s a torn pair of pants, which ends up tearing a hole in the space.

Eating the cake pile was the first mistake which led to more mistakes and eventually spoiled everything. The second mistake was trying to squeeze into the dancing pants even after realizing they were too small for him. The pants end up ripping off during the dance, which causes a black hole in the space.
After noticing the black hole, Llama starts researching and running scientific experiments. He also consults with the professional of those days and later analyzes his collected data during the research.

He later comes to a conclusion, and instead of warning the world, he makes the third mistake of making a sandwich.
What will happen to the world after Llama fails to make the warning?

This book is everything you would want to find in a children’s book. The foreshadowing is done so well for the little kids. The story is so funny, and you will find yourself laughing out loud like kids.

It can make a perfect gift for your kid during their birthday or any of their special days.
The book is quick, silly, funny, and has clear, bright, colorful pictures for any kid to love.
It’s also a lovely story to narrate to your children or grandchildren during story time.
Llamas are cute and funny and don’t seem to be brainiacs, so it just feels naturally okay to love at them when they see a pile of cake and start drooling.
The writing is hilarious and silly, and the illustrations are incredibly adorable. Llama is a happy fellow, and he practices artistic endeavors like painting and dancing.

The illustrations show that Llama has wacky eyes and a funny face full of different expressions. The only words he can say are ‘I am Llama’ and dat.’
There is a thing or two children can learn from the exciting Llama as there is plenty of vocabulary and alliteration used.

Don’t Feed the Coos
Jonathan Stutzman returns with laugh loud story about the dangers of feeding pigeons, aka coos. Once you see a coo, you are always tempted to feed them as they are peaceful and look adorable.

They are cute little birds, and this draws people to feed them.
Have you ever fed pigeons? What happens when you feed them?
This is a cautionary tale where the author warns us that if you feed a coo, all the others will come also wanting to be fed.
The story begins when a little girl shares her piece of bread with a single coo, then the other coos start following this generous but foolish girl who didn’t take the warning of not feeding coos seriously.

They follow her from park to home to the arcade then to karate practice.
She has coos everywhere and has gotten her into trouble with her mother, and they have pooed everywhere, of course, because they’ve been fed and have no sign of leaving.

She knows that once you feed one coo with a crumb, the whole population will come after you wanting to be fed, and it’s not easy to ignore or escape them.
Will she be able to get them back to the park?

The narrator is an invisible character who warns the main character, then narrates through her mistake, and later compliments her for finding a way out of her situation.

Don’t Feed the Coos serve as a reminder that one disastrous reaction sometimes comes from their most innocent actions. The narrator says that once you feed them, you’ve to accept your fate and live with them until you find a way to take them back to the park.
Later the little girl comes up with a sneaky plan to get rid of the coos. She decides to buy seed for an older man at the park then he starts feeding the coos himself.

The girl is now relieved as the coos start following the man. Will the man be able to get rid of them?
Jonathan Stutzman and his illustrator Heather Fox give readers yet another hilarious and ridiculous story to delight them.
The story is funny with many laughing-out-loud scenes, and you’ll find yourself laughing even in the first pages. Illustrations are so lovable and engaging, and the humor is just enough.

The art in the book is playful and bright enough with a large case size, making it excellent for group readings.
This can be a quick bedtime story for your kid before sleeping.
