Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 04/15/2020 Pizza and Taco are the ultimate best-besties—finishing each other’s sentences, sharing a love of super-awesome waterslides, doing cool best-friend dances—but when Taco declares that Pizza is the best, Pizza—instead of returning the compliment—agrees! Thus begins a fierce but friendly contest to determine who is actually best. After a vote ends in a one-to-one tie and a waterslide competition leaves the winner undetermined, their exploration of “the true meaning of being best” leads each to recognize the best in the other. This book’s hilarity is rooted in the charming design of its characters: Shaskan fills bold outlines with photographic images of sauce and cheese (for Pizza) and ground beef (for Taco), using round eyes, curving mouths, and stick limbs to produce surprisingly emotive and endearing interactions. The visual comedy is matched by the absurd storyline, which is littered with smaller laughs as the pair cycles between mutual adoration and intense rivalry. Straightforward paneling and simple dialogue make this a perfect choice for early readers beginning their climb to Dog Man. - Copyright 2020 Booklist.
