Besties Pizza and Taco are BACK in Book 3, putting their drawing skills--and wild imaginations--to good use writing a comic book together! When you love comics like Pizza and Taco do, the next step after reading them is to collaborate on one!! But what happens when they run up against artistic differences? Who gets to have the bigger muscles and the more rad superpowers? Can these two strong-willed foodstuffs compromise and make a comic that is more awesome than the sum of its parts? This hilarious young graphic novel--with chapters--will tickle the funny bones of kids ages 5-8 and bolster their reading confidence. Readers will also love the first two books in the series, Pizza and Taco: Who's the Best? and Pizza and Taco: Best Party Ever! Young graphic chapter books are a great step on the way to graphic novels and longer chapter books.
STEPHEN SHASKAN has written and illustrated a dozen children's books, including the Pizza and Taco series of graphic chapter books. His debut picture book, A Dog Is a Dog, was a New York Public Library 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing Selection and was a CCBC Choices Book. He holds a BFA in illustration from Rhode Island School of Design, and worked with kids for twenty years as an early childhood educator and an after-school and summer art teacher. He performs musical storytimes, presents at schools, conferences, and festivals, and teaches comic classes to kids.
