Booklist - 04/01/2020 Being fonder of eating frequent, massive meals than cleaning the kitchen afterward, Llama builds a Replicator and invites Alpaca—“an alpaca of impeccable tidiness”—over to step inside. The scheme works like a charm, and a flurry of electronic ZOOPs later Llama has a horde of fanatical cleaners busily at work . . . so many, in fact, that when, to relieve the crowding, he releases them on an unsuspecting world, their relentless scrubbing, sweeping, and vacuuming causes everyone to flee, screaming “This is the END!!” Is there any way to terminate the terrifying tide of tidiness? Happily, the irresistible scent of the extra-cheese pizza Llama is having for Second Dinner lures the entire apron-clad army back into the Replicator, and soon there is again but one Alpaca. Unhappily, that leaves two camelids with but one slice of cake between them for dessert. Young readers who chortled over Llama Destroys the World (2019) will see the obvious solution and will echo the googly-eyed gourmand’s triumphant “dat” as he gets his just desserts in the last cartoon scene. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
