DUAL REVIEW: Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin
Tracy's Rating: 3.5/5 Stars
Genre: Picture Book
Audience: Preschool to 1st grade
Summary: In this cautionary tale for all would-be hosts of parties for dragons, Adam Rubin gives tips for what to feed the guests at your party. In short: DRAGONS LOVE TACOS! However, do not ever feed your guest dragons spicy salsa. (Dragons hate spicy salsa! It makes them "hot under the collar!")
Lucinda's Views: This cute, imaginative book's title was what really caught my attention. How often do you see the words dragon and tacos in one title? Exactly....Anyway, with its cute tale of what to feed dragons this book is a humorous read aloud that kids of all ages will enjoy. With its fanciful art and innovative subject matter, this is a book that your kiddos will want you to read again and again.
Tracy's Thoughts: This cute and clever picture book is virtually guaranteed to tickle any young child's fancy. The story revels in its silliness, and the colorful pencil and watercolor artwork is both fabulous and hilarious. Despite an unfortunately abrupt ending (from my point of view, and the primary reason I didn't select it for our Best of 2012 list), this is a fun and cheerful story with a lot of kid appeal.
