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 of Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri has created an unforgettable tale of new friends and the perfect snack.

8 thoughts on “Dragons Love Tacos”

  1. I don’t write many reviews because rarely does a product move me to the point of promoting it, but this book is the exception.

    Having read the authors previous book, “Those Darned Squirrels”, I immediately noticed when Dragons Love Tacos came to my local bookstore. Always wanting to save a buck I opted to purchase on Amazon.

    The author has come a long way since writing about rodents. The images and story are HILARIOUS. This book instantly became my nephew’s favorite (as well as my 2 friends kids, whom I also bought it for).

    If you’re looking for a very serious book that will educate your children about the socioeconomic policies of Asia, look elsewhere. If you’re looking for a hysterically funny book about Dragons eating Tacos, I GUARANTEE you won’t find a better option.


  2. This made my grandsons–aged 5 and 3–laugh out loud. A big success in the gift-from-grandma department. MY daughter, who has to read favorite books over and over, loved it too.

  3. Love this book– the author illustrator team can’t be beat. My only complaint is the repeated use of the word “hate”. So, when I read this to my kids, I will replace the word “hate” with the word “loathe”-
    which would have been much funnier in my opinion anyway.
    Can’t wait for a sequel!

  4. My six-year-old niece LOVES this book! It made me Favorite Aunt for at least a day. The illustrations are great and the story is fun. Recommended!

  5. It was delivered a little over two hours ago and has already been read 6 million times. I notice the other comments critiquing the use of the word hate and here are my thoughts: you are allowed to have preferences, and you’re even allowed to use the word hate in my family- just not towards people. Also, they are dragons, let’s maybe relax and take it for the fun it is.

  6. I got this for a teacher and listened as she read it aloud to her class and it was so fun to hear the kids literally laughing out loud as the pages turned. Clever story and bright illustrations– It’ll be a classic you want to keep!

  7. I just bought this book. I’d already enjoyed (and highly recommend) the author’s previous books, Those Darn Squirrels and Those Darn Squirrels and the Cat Next Door. I read this to my girls at bedtime last night and they LOVED it. My oldest quickly announced that we were all dragons and fed imaginary tacos to me and my wife in the next room. Great success!

  8. I really enjoyed the illustrative work on this book. I did, however, return the book once I read it. I wasn’t a fan that the author uses the word ‘hate’ several times throughout the book. We don’t use that word and we sure don’t want our son using that word.
