Do you love dragons? Yes? Well, then you’ll know that they love tacos. But not spicy and hot tacos. They hate hot and spicy tacos. Dragons also love parties.
This is central to Dragons Love Tacos, the story of a boy who wants a friendly relationship with dragons and plans a party.
When hosting a party for dragons how do you decide what kind of tacos need to be on the menu?
Dragons love tacos of all sizes, so big and little tacos are good. But their contents are another matter.
The boy experiments with various food combinations. Tomatoes, lettuce and cheese are all good. But salsa, and hot sauce, is not. The thing is that spicy food sets a dragon smoking and snorting. And that can lead to sparks and fire. All of that can be a dangerous combination.
When spicy salsa tacos are accidentally served at the dragon taco party, sparks are going to fly. And that means trouble.
Dragons Love Tacos is colourful and quirky. You’ll love it whether or not you love dragons or tacos yourself.
