Praise for Dragons Love Tacos:

"Off-kilter fun for those who like their picture books (and salsa) zesty and fresh."
-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Dragons Love Tacos is a heaping helping of silly.  Little kids will relate to the anti-spicy bias and chuckle over Salmieri's watercolor and gouache cartoon illustrations showing literally boatloads of tacos and all sizes of dragons enjoying their favorite food at pool parties, costume parties and, well, taco parties."
-San Francisco Chronicle

"The perfect book for kids who love dragons and mild tacos."
-Kirkus

"The watercolor, gouache, and colored pencil cartoon illustrations are the real stars here. Regardless of, or perhaps because of, the absurdity of the story, this tale should be a big hit with anyone with an affinity for dragons."
-School Library Journal
