Description



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

My 4 year old read it in class and seemed to enjoy it so I thought I’d purchase a copy for at home. I’m not impressed. It somewhat builds you up to some great/funny ending only to let you down.

Using the word hate repeatedly in a children’s book is not appropriate. Ok to dislike something but hate is a strong word.

Cute book and it taught my one year old to say Taco. Would say it’s a good book for age 2 and up. Essentially about a bunch of dragons with IBS.

I purchased this book online and regret not researching about the book prior. I just noticed it was a top seller and my 2.5 year old is crazy for books and loves a bedtime book! I cannot believe the age group for this book is 3 years-7 years! WOW! I can’t imagine reading this book to my 2.5 year old and having him start using the word “hate”! The book isn’t that great either, idk what the rave is all about!

I didn’t like the book the first time I read it to my daughter. My daughter seemed to really like it and always asked me to read it to her. Now I love the book. It’s my daughters favorite book!!

Cute idea and pictures but terrible writing. We thought pages were missing because it was so jumpy (even for a kids book). So disappointing

We crossed out the word “hate” throughout the book and replaced it with “do not like”, “despise”, etc.

How to host a dragon party

5 out of 5 stars
Kim - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
This book is very well illustrated and thought out. It's a book for preschoolers that combines dragons with tacos and includes some tips on being the proper host. It talks about how dragons love all kinds of tacos, and that if you want them to come to your party you should serve them. It advises, however, not to serve them spicy salsa so they don't burn down your house. I'm pleased with the amount of creativity that went into this book. I'd recommend it!
