Hello everyone and welcome to the Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel Blog Tour. Today is my stop on the tour and I decided to share a fun playlist I put together inspired by the story and all the different scenarios that happen to our taco-loving friends as they go back in time to try and save the tacos from extinction. In the first book, Dragons Love Tacos, we find out all about what types of tacos Dragons love to eat, and what never to feed them.  Check out my review and easy chicken taco recipe here.

 

DRAGONS LOVE TACOS 2 SUMMARY:

Our dragons’ favorite snack is in danger of going extinct in this laugh-out-loud, time-traveling sequel to the New York Times bestseller Dragons Love Tacos.

Listen, don’t freak out, but I have some terrible news: There are no tacos left anywhere in the entire world! That’s a huge problem because, as you know, dragons love tacos. We’ve got to do something! I know, let’s fire up that time machine in the garage and go back in time, to before tacos went extinct. Then we can grab lots of tacos and bring them back with us. Just be sure you don’t grab any tacos with spicy salsa. You remember what happened last time…

 

ABOUT ADAM RUBIN:

Adam Rubin is the New York Times best-selling author of a half dozen critically-acclaimed picture books including Secret Pizza Party and Robo-Sauce. He spent ten years working as a creative director in the advertising industry before leaving his day job to write full time. Adam has a keen interest in improv comedy, camping and magic tricks.

 

ABOUT DANIEL SALMIERI:

Daniel Salmieri has illustrated many fantastic picture books, including the New York Times bestseller Robo-Sauce. He grew up in Brooklyn, New York, constantly drawing and painting images of ninja turtles, dinosaurs, and fighter jets (not in the same scene…), and graduated from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

 

MY PLAYLIST: Inspired by the illustrations and the many different time traveling scenarios from the story, I have put together the following playlist. You can find it also on Spotify.

 

  1. Radioactive- Imagine Dragons (It wouldn’t be right not to include something with or by Dragons…)
  2. Sombras- Quando Tu Te Hayas Ido (“When you have gone”)- Ligia Camara (a little sad song for mourning the tacos possible extinction)
  3. The Safety Dance – Men without Hats (something a little more fun, and uplifting for time-travel)
  4. Daylight – Matt and Kim (Time machine travel music)
  5. Salsa & Choke – ChocQuibTown, Nejo (Because spicy salsa should be kept from dragons at all costs)
  6. La Bamba – Los Lobos (Because things get a little).
  7. Happy – Pharrell Williams (When we finally rescue some tacos)
  8. Howlin For You – The Black Keys (What I think dragons would do if they couldn’t find tacos…they would howl and howl).
  9. Yo Quiero (“ I Want”) – Gente De Zona, Pitbull (We made it back in one piece and with a taco to spare)
  10. Best Day of My Life – American Authors (HOORAY!!! We SAVED the Tacos and the Dragons are so very Grateful. TACO PARTY TIME!!!! )

 

I hope you enjoy my playlist and make sure to pick up your very own copy of the delightful and fun Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel.
