Another excellent title, as far as I’m concerned.

Possibly one of the most bonkers picture books I’ve ever read – incorporating cake, cosmic vibrations, black holes, and cheese-salad sandwiches – it’s an absolute riot, and I loved the twist, which happens a bit before the end but is hilariously satisfying after all the madness leading up to it.

From Simon's list on unexpected endings & terrific twists.

My granddaughter introduced me to Llama, and I had a hard time reading aloud because I couldn’t stop laughing. Has a character ever been more pleased with himself than Llama, or more self-indulgent? He eats more cake than a llama should ever eat, puts on his dancing pants and cha-chas—but squeezing into those pants after all that cake causes the pants to split so violently that a black hole opens in space. Portents of doom appear, but Llama ignores them. When the universe pops back through the black hole and all’s right with the world again, Llama finds pie. 

From Nancy's list on picture books about foolishness.
