About this item


About the Book

Best friends Pizza and Taco agree on nearly everything until Pizza declares himself the best of all, leading to debating, voting, competing, and finally defining what being the best really means.

Book Synopsis

The first in a hilarious young graphic novel series about Pizza and Taco. Two best friends, lots of toppings...but only one of them can be the BEST, right? Fans of Narwhal and Jelly will eat this book up...and be hungry for more!

Best friends are the BEST! But WHO is the BEST? Is it Pizza or Taco? The question is debatable! They both love water slides. They both are friends with Hot Dog and Hamburger. In fact, maybe they should have a debate and get their friends to VOTE for who's the best! Can their friendship survive the race for top spot on the popularity food chain? Cast your VOTE!

This graphic chapter book will tickle the funny bones of kids ages 4-7 and bolster their reading confidence. Readers will be eager to devour the next book in the series, Pizza and Taco Throw a Party, coming in 2021! Young graphic chapter books are also a great step on the way to longer chapter books and graphic novels.

Review Quotes

"YAAAS! This lunch bunch serves pure silliness." -Kirkus Reviews

A perfect choice for early readers beginning their climb to Dog Man." -Booklist

Fans of Clanton's Narwhal and Jelly series will find these foodie friends particularly appealing. -The Bulletin

There's plenty of gross-out humor for kids. Readers will relate to the joy and frustration of friendly competition, and the hilarity of watching an animated taco and slice of pizza do their best-friends dance is not to be missed. A delightful graphic novel for young readers. -School Library Journal

Kid praise for Pizza and Taco: Who's the Best?

This book is really funny! I love this book, because...PIZZA! -Charlie, age 7

It's a great mix of friendship, competition, and delicious food! -Shira, age 9

Bought this for my son to start reading chapter books. It's perfect for beginning readers and not using hard words. My son has a hard time staying focused and he absolutely loved this book and read it in one sitting and only stopped reading to talk about what Taco or Pizza were doing.
