Dragons Love Tacos
Adam Rubin (Author), Daniel Salmieri (Illustrator)
You can just see where this one is going by the title, right? Who knew that dragons were such big fans
of these delicious Mexican treats? Yup. Dragons. But, just remember, dragons have some serious
fire power, so even a little bit of spice could make a wee dragon blow its gasket. This is a giggly, silly
funfest to share with your knight or maiden, but please keep the salsa mild!

This scrumptious read-aloud 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.
