I am so glad there’s a sequel to Dragons Love Tacos. My little family and I thoroughly enjoyed the first one, and you can tell just by the title, Dragons Love Tacos 2, the Sequel, that Adam Rubin hits it out of the park with his zany humor once again. The amazing duo teamed up again for this book, and I would be remiss if I didn’t compliment the funky illustrations by Daniel Salmieri.
The boy needs to help his dragon friends, because tragically the world has eaten every…single…taco. They are extinct, no more, kaput. (This is a play on the repetitive humor Rubin utilizes in the story.) Luckily, the boy has a spare time machine in the garage, so he and a few of the dragons travel to the past to save a taco “seed” to plant in the present. Along the way, though, they almost mess up their mission more than once: spicy salsa consumption, fire blasts to the time vehicle, traveling too far and going prehistoric, and visiting alternative time lines. There’s fun and laughs on every page, and I highly recommend pairing this book with the prequel.
Actually, we were given this book before buying or reading the first one. Guess what? It still works. We giggled at the silly dragons, and the recap “dragons love tacos” covered the necessities.
