This scrumptious New York Times bestseller has a whole lot of kick!
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.
Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri are the creators of Those Darn Squirrels!, which was a Borders Original Pick. Adam lives in New York, New York, and Daniel lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Rubin and Salmieri (Those Darn Squirrels!) are two of the weirdest, funniest guys working in kids lit today. The team lets its geek flag fly in an obsessive how-to guide for would-be dragon taco party hosts. Why a taco party? As Rubin explains, The only things dragons love more than parties or tacos, is taco parties. If further proof is required, Salmieriwhose poker-faced watercolor, gouache, and color pencil drawings set a benchmark for oddball observational humorshows one odd, scaly creature with a carryout bag from Taco Cave and another beaming with anticipation as it eagerly circles the date for a taco party on its taco-themed calendar. But beware: even if all the tips and rules are followed to the letter (on quantity: The best way to judge is to get a boat and fill the boat with tacos), all will be for naught if spicy salsa makes its way into the taco filling. In fact, the dragons will bring a whole new meaning to housewarming. Off-kilter fun for those who like their picture books (and salsa) zesty and fresh. Ages 35. Agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House.

"Off-kilter fun for those who like their picture books (and salsa) zesty and fresh."
"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."
"The perfect book for kids who love dragons and mild tacos."
"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."
