									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 behind Those Darn Squirrels! has created an unforgettable, laugh-until-salsa-comes-out-of-your-nose tale of new friends and the perfect snack.

Three stars. "...amusing...this is recommended" - Video Librarian

"This is an absurd, over-the-top romp...a slice of ridiculous with an unexpected kick, sure to elicit giggles." - School Library Journal (video review)

"Young viewers will giggle when they see smoke (accompanied by sounds of a blaring horn) coming out of the dragons' ears... [a] fun program for kids, who will definitely appreciate the goofy humor and silliness." - Booklist

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

"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

"Rubin and Salmieri, the team behind the equally hilarious ‘Those Darn Squirrels!,’ bring their kooky sensibility to this irresistible story about what can go wrong at a taco party for dragons... The dragons may screw up the party, but this book gets everything right." - The New York Times

"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
