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.

Don't milk it.

Compared to the goofy and entertaining Dragons Love Tacos, the sequel is as flat as a tortilla. The idea of dragons loving tacos is silly enough, but it works. What doesn't work is a ridiculous plot about the disappearance of all the world's tacos, necessitating a trip back in time to find a taco that can be planted and grown into a taco tree.

Overall, this is just disappointing. If you enjoy the absurd, you might like this. Otherwise, just stick with the first book.

Premise: 2/5
