Off-site: Llama Destroys the World at the Downtown Library!

Literati is pleased to be on hand to sell books as the Ann Arbor District Library welcomes Jonathan Stutzman and Heather Fox to the downtown branch for a special storytime with Llama Destroys the World

About the book: 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, Llama Destroys the World, 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. 

About the authors:

Jonathan Stutzman is an award-winning independent filmmaker and writer of books for children. His short films have screened around the world and on television, and he is a contributing writer to the bestselling collection The Tiny Book of Tiny Stories and Emmy-winning variety show HitRecord on TV. When he isn’t writing, Jonathan loves books, playing with his puppy, exploring, and watching old black and white movies. He is a staunch believer in the power of stories and the deliciousness of donuts. Jonathan lives in the wilds of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and as you read this, he is probably writing something new.

Heather Fox is an illustrator of stories for children. Her art is filled with quirk and dashes of whimsy that is created in both doodle and digital forms. When she isn’t creating, she is probably drinking a hot cup of coffee, eating Chinese food, or chasing down her dog (Sir Hugo) that has stolen one of her socks. Fox's books for children include The Elephant's Nose and Llama Destroys the World. She lives in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
