The hilarious sequel to the smokin' hot New York Times best seller, perfect for story time

News alert! It has just been discovered that there are NO MORE TACOS left anywhere in the world. This is a huge problem because, as you know, dragons love tacos. If only there was a way for the dragons to travel back in time, to before tacos went extinct. Then they could grab lots of tacos and bring them back! It's the perfect plan, as long as there's no spicy salsa. You remember what happened last time . . .
The award-winning creators of Robo-Sauce and Secret Pizza Party return with a gut-bustingly hilarious companion to the bestselling phenomenon Dragons Love Tacos.

***Our Review***

What We Loved:

We’re not going to lie, we were pretty worried that the sequel wouldn’t hold up to the awesomeness of the first book. We shouldn’t have doubted it for a second. This one was just as good. Same gorgeous and hilarious illustrations. Same fast-paced humorous flow. The pages were filled with more dragons and more tacos plus Frankenstein, time travel, diapers, and so much more. It’s been read almost every night since release day in Meg’s house and no one is tired of it yet. That’s high praise! If you haven’t gotten your kiddos (or yourself!) a copy yet, you need to run out and grab one now!

***Mini Swoons Review***

Review by Matteo, Age 5

WHAT? THIS WAS AWESOME! I want to read it 100 times. I really really really liked the page about diapers and the one about pizza! And all the pictures were awesome like in the first tacos book. Is there going to be a third taco book? (I hope so buddy, I hope so!)

***Mini Swoons Review***

Review by Luca, Age 8

Mom, I didn’t think I’d like this one as much as I liked the first one, but I did! Every page made me laugh, especially when he kept messing up the time machine and we got to see funny stuff from the other book and new stuff like Dragons Love Diapers! Can we get another copy so I can have my own? Mattie’s never going to share! (The answer was yes, we got a 2nd copy the next day!)
