School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Little known fact: dragons LOVE tacos. In fact, tacos are truly the key to a dragon's heart. Dragons also LOVE parties, especially a taco party. If you want dragons for friends, this is a surefire combination. But be warned-as much as dragons love tacos and parties, they abhor spicy salsa. It can result in unfortunate consequences. A young boy plans the perfect party-buckets of tacos, baskets of tacos, boatloads of tacos. Unfortunately, his "mild" salsa contains jalapenos, with combustible consequences. This is an absurd, over-the-top romp. Chris Patton reads Adam Rubin's humorously understated text (Dial, 2012) with great enthusiasm. Occasional bouncy mariachi music and sound effects add to the fun. Salmieri's gouache and colored pencil illustrations are scanned, with a little animation added here and there. Viewers can choose to simply watch or select the read-along option. This is a slice of ridiculous with an unexpected kick sure to elicit giggles.-Teresa Bateman, Brigadoon Elementary, Federal Way, WA (c) Copyright 2014.
