DRAGONS LOVE TACOS by ADAM RUBIN and DANIEL SALMIERI

Dragons Love Tacos

Dragons Love Tacos

DRAGONS LOVE TACOS is a very successful book created by the team of Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri. Publishers don’t usually like teams as they like to find their own illustrators.

One has only to look at and then read this book to see why they made an exception. The story and illustrations are delightful, whimsical, and original in every way!

The best bits are in the details, which are humorous and appealing to children. Adam Rubin writes in a chatty way that is easy to follow and Daniel Salmieri illustrates in a unique and wonderfully textured style.

If you haven’t yet discovered this book, you need to do so immediately as you and your children will love it!

BUGS ON JASMINE'S WALLS

Bugs on Jasmine's Walls, Illustration by Elizabeth B Martin

Jasmine’s imaginary friend is a cat called Boo. They both love bugs and decide to decorate the walls of her room with flowers and stick-on bugs.

This seemed to me a fun project that should go in my book. I did receive a rather disconcerting critique informing me that moms would not buy a book encouraging their daughters to paint their walls. I think she might have had a point. What a shame children don’t get to choose their own books as I think they would have agreed with Jasmine that this was a splendid idea.
