“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
