Dragons Love Tacos in THE PIT
On our recent Central Ohio Bloggers day at Cover to Cover, my friend Beth showed me the galley of Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin, illustrated by Daniel Salmieri, you know, the guys from Those Darn Squirrels another PIT favorite. That's me holding it in the photo.
I read it in the store and of course, there I was laughing out loud in the store. The book will be released in June so place your orders now, you won't be disappointed.
Obviously the book tells of the dragons' love of tacos, it doesn't really explain why they love tacos, it doesn't even really matter why they love tacos. It does, however, explain in detail that they hate spicy salsa. All kinds of spicy salsa, spicy green salsa, spicy red salsa, spicy chunky salsa, spicy smooth salsa, all kinds of spicy salsa. It makes their ears smoke, their noses snort sparks and gives them the tummy troubles.
Most of the kids predicted the ending of the book, but it didn't take anything away from the fun, colorful illustrations. Just like Those Darn Squirrels, the book made all of us laugh and that's a good thing.
