Magic, Adventure, and Chocolate, Too…

The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart

Out Now!

When fierce young dragon Aventurine is tricked into drinking enchanted hot chocolate, she’s horrified to find herself transformed into a puny, blunt-toothed, wingless human girl. But she’s still a dragon on the inside, and her instincts – combined with her new-found passion for chocolate – take her to the Chocolate Heart, a quirky chocolate house in need of help (and customers). Still, it will take all her courage, lots of chocolate and perhaps a little magic to learn to be her true self…

“A gloriously fresh story to be read with a steaming cup of chocolate at hand.”

– ★ Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews

Winner of the Cybils Award for Elementary/Middle Grade Speculative Fiction 2017. Also a Mighty Girl Book of the Year.
