Reviewed in the United States on December 4, 2013
This parody of the fun "Llama Llama" children's book series maintains much of the smooth rhyming pattern of the children's books, although some verses, such as the "Romney/zombie" couplet, are forced. The use of stereotypes and exaggeration are appropriate for the parody art form, but they seemed juvenile in this book, which is not intended for juvenile readers. The expression of Llama Llama's sophomoric political views and Mama Llama's reaction to them are very simplistic.

Is it possible that, like Llama Llama in this book, many college-aged Americans view homosexual rights as a significant issue and a flawed health care law and feeble economy as secondary issues? Of course, but it seems that Mr. Turner had a somewhat clever concept and it is unfortunate that he did not present the conflict between mother and son in a more enlightened manner.
