This book was hilarious! It starts out as almost a National Geographic type of book. “This is a squirrel.” “Squirrels love to eat nuts -” That kind of information. And then you have Taco. He is less than impressed with the narrator’s idea of what a squirrel is, especially when the hawk comes out! So, Taco gets a marker and decides to start rewriting the story, hastily of course because he has to avoid that hawk! We laughed our way through the hilarious antics of Taco, the Squirrel.
And the artwork . . .
This book has such beautiful illustrations, taking creativity to the next level. Mister Chu laughed and laughed when he saw the picture of the giant taco. And Taco, the Squirrel has the funniest expressions throughout this book! This is a Taco! is one of our favorite KidLit books so far this year! Quote the four-year-old “This was a good book. And a good taco.”
A big thank you to NetGalley for my review copy of This is a Taco! We were not compensated for our review and the gifting of this book in no way influenced our review. All opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own and Mister Chu’s.
