Kids Corner – “Dragons Love Tacos”

Being a lover of tacos I was immediately drawn to a new book on our bookshelf,Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and illustrated by Daniel Salmieri. 

What’s not to love about tacos?  They are crunchy, you make them on the fly, you eat them with your hands, tacos are delicious!  So why shouldn’t dragons love them too?  They do!  They love them so much that is all they think about.  Dragons also love parties, their favorite kind being taco parties of course.

There is just one catch, they hate spicy salsa.  If you want to find out why you will have to read the book (I’m not going to spoil it for you).

Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri, the team behind the equally hilarious Those Darn Squirrels!, bring their kooky appreciation to this adorable story about what can go wrong at a taco party for dragons. Salmieri’s pencil-and-watercolor drawings are not only a zany delight, they’re also strangely beautiful. The dragons may screw up the taco party, but they make everything right in the end.
