Taco the squirrel has gotten out his red pen and made a few changes to this book about squirrels. For starters, he thinks it should contain fewer scary predators and more of his favourite food- tacos!
Written by Andrew Cangelose and illustrated by Josh Shipley, this cute children's picture book actually does contain some interesting facts about squirrels (did you know they can rotate their ankles all the way backwards?), but the story is told in a silly, irreverent way from the point of view of Taco. The illustrations are cute and the story is told with a quirky sense of humour.
This is a Taco will probably appeal to children aged 4-6, and to parents, since it is fun to read aloud.
