Hijinks ensue when a little boy decides to make friends with dragons by feeding them their favorite food: tacos. When he fails to read the fine print, he ends up with more than he bargained for. Funny, good for predictions. ( )

These dragon's love taco's: all different kinds of tacos! But what happens when a dragon eats a taco with salsa, salsa with a jalapeno in it? Well my friend, that Dragon is going to breath fire.

This book is about how much dragons love tacos, but be careful because they do not love spicy salsa. In fact, when a dragon gets anything spicy bad things happen. If you host a taco party for dragons be ready for trouble. However, dragons are really helpful in fixing things if you give them taco breaks.

I had mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I thought it was a comical story that young children would enjoy it, but I also thought that it lacked an engaging plot. One reason I liked this book was because it specifically addressed readers through different questions and statements. For example, the author states, “These dragons love your taco party!” and “Did you know that dragons love tacos?” It engages the reader because it makes them think that they are the main character in the book who is preparing this taco party. Young readers would definitely respond well to that aspect of the book. One reason I didn’t like the book was because of the lack of theme and plot. The book is about the reader throwing a taco party for dragons and discusses what you must do to make a taco that is not spicy. The dragons accidentally get jalapenos in their tacos, and it results in them breathing out fire and burning down the house, which is the end of the story. I wish that there would have been a more interesting plot or a better ending to the story, as I was surprised that it ended the way it did. The main idea of this book was to give the readers a silly, fictional story about dragons that love tacos, but hate spicy tacos. ( )

This is a really entertaining tale of how much dragons like tacos and parties, but especially when the two are combined. A young boy learns about the types of tacos they like and how much they don't like spicy things. He mistakenly serves tacos with mild salsa that has small pieces of jalapenos. He tries to warn the dragons, but its too late and they all start breathing fire. The fire burns the house down, but thankfully the dragons help rebuild. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803736800, Hardcover)

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.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:25:48 -0400)

Explores the love dragons have for tacos, and the dangers of feeding them them anything with spicy salsa.
