Dragons Love Tacos

Review by Ariadna Sánchez

Would you like to eat a crunchy taco?

Do you want it with beef, pork, or chicken?

Do I add lettuce, cheese and spicy salsa? What?

You don’t know what a taco is?

Well, don’t worry because by the time you finish reading Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin and illustrated by Daniel Salmieri you will be a taco expert.  The book is a hilarious story about dragons who love crunchy and tasty tacos (without spicy salsa).

Can you imagine a taco without spicy salsa? I don’t.  I personally like tacos with the super-hot spicy salsa. Yum, Yum.

Dragons Love Tacos is a delicious story about a young boy and his dog. One day, they decide to organize a taco party for Dragons. They take care of the planning and the preparation of the tacos. All ingredients are fresh and the toppings are mild because remember, the dragons don’t like spicy salsa. Everything is ready at the biggest and coolest taco party ever. Just as the dragons get ready to eat, one of them gets a bottle of mild salsa to put on the tacos. However, the fine print reads “now with spicy jalapeño peppers.” The boy tells the dragons not to eat the tacos, but it is too late because the dragons’ ears begin smoking like the crater of a volcano. Flames come out the dragons’ mouths burning down the boy’s house.

The good news is that the dragons help rebuild the boy’s house. The boy doesn’t know if the dragons are helping him because they are good Samaritans, feel bad for destroying the house or want to eat tacos during the break. After all, dragons love tacos.
