About the Book



The award-winning team behind "Those Darn Squirrels!" has created an unforgettable, laugh-until-salsa-comes-out-of-your-nose tale of new friends and the perfect snack. Full color.



Book Synopsis



A #1 New York Times bestselling phenomenon, this deliciously funny read-aloud is an unforgettable tale of new friends and the perfect snack that will make you laugh until spicy salsa comes out of your nose.

Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You're in red-hot trouble.

The award-winning team of Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri are also the creators of Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel, El Chupacabras, High Five, Robo-Sauce, and Secret Pizza Party.



Review Quotes



#1 New York Times bestseller
Summer 2012 Kids' Indie Next List
New York Times Notable Book

* Off-kilter fun for those who like their picture books (and salsa) zesty and fresh.--Publishers Weekly, starred review

Dragons Love Tacos is a heaping helping of silly. Little kids will relate to the anti-spicy bias and chuckle over Salmieri's watercolor and gouache cartoon illustrations showing literally boatloads of tacos and all sizes of dragons enjoying their favorite food at pool parties, costume parties and, well, taco parties.--San Francisco Chronicle

The perfect book for kids who love dragons and mild tacos.--Kirkus Reviews

The watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil cartoon illustrations are the real stars here. Regardless of, or perhaps because of, the absurdity of the story, this tale should be a big hit with anyone with an affinity for dragons.--School Library Journal
