Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel

Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri. Dial, $18.99 (48p) ISBN 978-0-525-42888-6

When the world runs out of tacos, there’s only one thing to do: go back in time, “save a handful of tacos, plant them in the ground, and grow taco trees so we never run out of tacos again.” Fans of Dragons Love Tacos won’t be surprised that this expedition doesn’t go terribly smoothly: there are several spicy-salsa-triggered fire-breathing incidents, as well as pit stops in timelines where dragons love diapers and giant tacos love dragons. Are the time jumps always easy to track? Not really, but this sequel’s dialed-up energy and absurdity remain a tasty—and very funny—combination. Ages 3–5. Author’s agent: Jennifer Joel, ICM. Illustrator’s agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House. (May)
