Dragons love tacos. They love chicken tacos, beef tacos, great big tacos, and teeny tiny tacos. So if you want to lure a bunch of dragons to your party, you should definitely serve tacos. Buckets and buckets of tacos. Unfortunately, where there are tacos, there is also salsa. And if a dragon accidentally eats spicy salsa . . . oh, boy. You’re in red-hot trouble.

Maybe you have thought about having a marshmallow roasting party and inviting them…only to find out that dragons aren’t really crazy about roasting marshmallows. So how do you make friends with a dragon?? The answer is simple really….all you have to do is throw a taco party!! Did you ever dream that tacos is a favorite food of a dragon?
Now that you know that Dragons love tacos, you need to check out the Dragons Love Tacos book to find out exactly how to throw a taco party that dragons are going to LOVE!

I do highly recommend that you read this book very carefully. No skipping around, because there is something very important that you have to remember when it comes to throwing a taco party.
