review 1: What a fun story with wonderful illustrations! Children find the mud tacos completely silly and giggle and squirm at the mere idea of eating a mud taco!

It incorporates themes like getting along with others (the cousin is GRUMPY!), playing with siblings, and using one's imagination. less
