‘Why do dragons love tacos? Maybe it’s the smell from the sizzling pan. Maybe it’s the crunch of the crispy tortillas…Either way, if you want to make friends with dragons, tacos are key.’

The mind-blowing, earth-shattering, tantalizing secrets of dragons REVEALED! When Mom runs down the street to pick up dinner, a boy and his faithful dog Leroy encounter a quartet of dancing dragons. Each one has its own unique style and personality, but they all have one thing in common: they’re hungry!

This hilarious, dance-filled journey into the field of Dragonology is equal parts ridiculous and delicious, and has all the ingredients for a fantastic time!


“A feast for the eyes… whether you're a fan of the book or a newbie as to the culinary habits of dragons, everyone will find something to savor.”
–Chicago Parent
