The humor in this book comes from the squirrel "talking back" to the narrator, who is trying to matter-of-factly give information about squirrels. Squirrel becomes much more insistent, eventually realizing that it (no gender is assigned) can actually change the events in the story. I generally enjoy this form of metafiction, and in this case, I especially like the ideas that characters (people) can write their own story, and that precise words are important.

This Is a Taco! starts off as a lesson about squirrels then veers off into a riff about taco's and a giant eating taco with a face. Rather odd and not nearly as funny as This is A Whoopsie by the same author.

3 stars, just barely

Taco is a squirrel who is named after his favorite food. What happens when you get a squirrel named Taco in a book? Lots of giggles, giant tacos, and surprises.

Taco is a squirrel that loves tacos! No tacos in the story? Then you must write your own story with tacos, of course! This funny book about a taco loving squirrel is sure to delight kids of all ages.

No squirrel has ever had this much attitude. "This is a Taco" provokes laughter with the turn of every page. Recommended for ages 4-8, this title makes a fantastic read aloud for kids in early elementary school. Parents, get ready; this one is sure to earn "read it again" requests from your little ones.
