Based on the book by Adam Rubin and illustrated by Daniel Salmieri, Published by Penguin Group.
In a hilarious dance filled adaptation of the loved children’s book, “Dragons Love Tacos”, a boy and his dog Leroy are taken on a taco filled adventure by the elaborate and quirky “Dragonology” T.V. show host, The Man in the Suit. They meet four different dragons and learn NOT to give them spicy salsa but most importantly, with a little drive and determination, amazing things can happen….
