Aventurine is the fiercest, bravest kind of dragon, and she's ready to prove it to her family by leaving the safety of their mountain cave and capturing the most dangerous prey of all: a human. But when the human she captures tricks her into drinking enchanted hot chocolate, she finds herself transformed into a puny human girl with tiny blunt teeth, no fire, and not one single claw. She's still the fiercest creature in these mountains though - and now she's found her true passion: chocolate!

Your Reviews

Freya from Ashfield Primary:

I really enjoy this book because it was adventurous and magical since a dragon went into a forest and was enchanted into a human by a food mage,she finally found her passion... it was making chocolate but when something went wrong she has to save her dragon family in order to not be killed.

Freya gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 5 out of 5 and now plans to read The Boy with One Name by J R Wallis.

Lucy from Collingham primary school:

I thought the start of this book was rushed, so it was very slow in the middle, but all in all it was a good book with a good storyline

Lucy gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 3 out of 5 and now plans to read The Boy with One Name by J R Wallis.

Benedict from Otley all saints primary school:

My reasoning for giving this book a one is that to my it made no seance. Some may think it is great but the writing stile is just not for me. Some of the aspects just don't work making it not as good as some of the others.

Benedict gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 1 out of 5 and now plans to read The Boy with One Name by J R Wallis.

seren from Otley all saints:

personally, i did not take interest in this book. of course, this is my opinion, and if you disagree i am fine with that. the problem for me with this book was that it was in a way " childish ". i know some of the plot would be quite hard for children to understand, therefor some of it is mature, but i got the feeling that SOME of it was kind of like a typical fairy-tale, which i find quite boring. like, it had a wizard, a dragon and that kind of typical fairy-tale stuff. again, this is my personal opinion, but i think this should've been rated for 7-9 year old's. my advice for next time is try and make the characters a bit more unique, and not like a fairy-tale. thank you for reading :)

Sarah from Alwoodley:

Mia from Beeston Primary school:

I enjoyed this book. A few of these books are slow starters and this was one of them. If you keep reading on and try not to put it back down, it gets better. A lot. It is about a dragon called Aventurine who wants to prove her family wrong about her being too young to go outside. While she does, she gets caught up in trouble which turns her in to a human! On the way she meets plenty of new friends who she trusts and has a strong friendship with. I really liked this book and I would recommend it to others.

Kayra from Beeston Primary School:

The dragon with a chocolate heart was an amazing book but at some points

it is a bit boring. It is about a dragon who drinks hot chocolate and turns into a human and her quest is to turn back into a dragon to see her family. I would definitely recommend this book.

Kayra gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 4 out of 5 and now plans to read The Boy with One Name by J R Wallis.

Dania from Alwoodley Primary School :

This book had a good start until it got near to the middle. But when I got into the middle it started to get very boring. The thing was, it brought your hopes up in the begging and end but the book for me let itself down near the middle.

Dania gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 2 out of 5 and now plans to read Just Call Me Spaghetti-Hoop Boy by Lara Williamson.

Alistair from Southroyd Primary & Nursery School:

I rated this book 5 out of 5 because I like how Aventurine knows nothing about humans' life and how she adapts to her surroundings. I did not think that it was a challenging book, but it is a great read for absolutely anybody.

james from st fancis primary school:

I rated this book 3 out of 5 because it said something and then it droned on and on. I also didn't like it because it didn't have chapter names. Finally because I didn't really understand it, but I liked it because it had good setting description and a good beginning. That is why I rate it a 3.

Azira from St Francis Catholic Primary School:

This book is very interesting and inspires imagination. Children who want to write their own book should read this. I especially like that Adventurine can turn into a human as well as a dragon. People who like fantasy and dragon stories read this, it is fantastic!

Azira gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 5 out of 5 and now plans to read The Explorer by Katherine Rundell.

Sarah from St Francis Catholic Primary School:

This book was amazing,especially at the start when Aventureine gets transformed into a human. I really liked it when she drinks hot chcolate to be able to tranform into a girl and a dragon. I say this again becuase i've said it in all my other reviewed books, definitley my favourite book so far in the 9-11 catagory. I just love this book so much!

Sarah gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 4 out of 5 and now plans to read The Boy with One Name by J R Wallis.

Amelia from Lawns Park Primary School:

This book enticed me in with the vivid front cover and kept me engrossed with a powerful story-line. The only downside to the book is all the talk about chocolate - it made me hungry! I found this book to be very unique as I have read no other book like this before which is why I would recommend it to 8-12 year olds (a very family-friendly book) 5/5 from me!

Amelia gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 5 out of 5 and now plans to read The Boy with One Name by J R Wallis.

Maisie from St Urban's Catholic Primary School:

The book was a lot more interesting at the beginning as it went from a dragon soaring through the skies to a little girl around my age on a journey to a chocolate factory.I have enjoyed the books I have read so far a bit more than this one because it's not really my type, but I would recommend to people interested in fantasy.

Maisie gave The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart 3 out of 5 and now plans to read Who Let the Gods Out? by Maz Evans.

RORY from Collingham primary school:

This book was good but didn't quite get me into the story.

It is a really good book but the characters are not described very well. I think the opening is the best part .

My favourite character in the book is Jasper as he studies humans as a dragon and Aventurine gets to be one!!!!!!

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone who likes unpredictable stories!

Lily from Barwick-in-elmet primary school:

This book was amazing. I love fantasy and chocolate so it was perfect. It was cool how you could experience Aventurine's feelings about other people and it introduced myself to a new perspective. I would have liked a bit more action and adventure near the end but it still was a really good book. Overall I loved reading this book and when I was reading it, I couldn't stop!

It wasn't my type of book.

I really enjoyed this book because it was just AMAZING!!!!

this book is amazing,after i read the first page i couldn't stop reading it. in this book it makes me want to read more and more every chapter to see what would happen next.

Lucy from Westgate Primary School:

The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart is a story about a young but adventurous dragon called Adventurine. Adventurine's siblings love reading and writing; yet all Adventurine wants to do is hunt in the mountains.

One day,Adventurine sneakily escaped from her cave, and went out onto the mountains. During her adventure, she met a human who gave her some magical hot chocolate which changed her life forever.

I found this book a little hard to get into because it is not very believable,however kids around 9-10 years old who like fantasy stories would probably devour this book.I think it was very well-written but it just wasn't my cup of tea.

Aventurine was a fierce dragon that lived high up in the moutains until one day she decided to leave her family and cave behind.But she didn't stay a dragon for long!Aventurine got tricked into drinking enchanted chocolate and this is where her life as a dragon ends!Or does it...

The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart was a book full of magic,adventures and chocolate.Out of all the characters I mostly adored Aventurine because when she first tasted chocolate,she realized what she loved the most. I mostly enjoyed the part of the book when Aventurines family(the dragons) searched for their daughter but after they found her, Aventurines mother still allowed her daughter to work at the Chocolate House.I would recommend this book to lovers of magic and adventure.

This book is about a young, fierce dragon (Aventurine) who is tricked into drinking enchanted chocolate and becomes a ... HUMAN!

My favourite part was when Aventurine gets accepted into a chocolate house by Marina , an equally strong,sassy girl like Aventurine.

Aventurine gets to meet another very good friend who is just as strong willed as her, and together they go on many incredible adventures.

This book was definitely worth a read, but be aware ... you may get many chocolate cravings.

The Dragon with a chocolate Heart - Stephanie Burgis

This book is about a dragon called Aventurine. She is the fiercest dragon in the mountains but not for long because a mischievous human tricks it into drinking a magical chocolate and becomes a HUMAN!!

My favourite part of the book was the way Aventurine describes human clothing being exchanged for shoes "foot coverings" because she didn't understand anything human.

I enjoyed the book because it was eventful and magical. I would recommend it to children who are aged 9-13.

Esmae from Otey all saints primary:

I enjoyed this book but found it quite hard to get into .I really liked the main character and thought her name was quite unusual .The books name is grabbing and thats why I decided to read it first .The front cover is verry atractive to.I prefered the book towards the end to the start because I thought the beginning was confusing at times.There are lots of characters in this book which take some time to get used to and know what people the book is talking about.

Irish from Shire oak:

It was very interesting but the girl was very short tempered. The blerb was very interesting. As I opened the first page it just took me to a different dimention. It was like going through a portal to the dragon's land and when the girl was riding the drago I really liked that bit. And when I finished it I never wanted it to end.

Theo from St Urban's Catholic Primary School:

The book was permitted, but every page was a cliffhanger and a new adventure. I wasn't really affected by the plot line, but in the deadline it became captivating that's the logic of why its a 3.

Jack from Kippax green field primary school:

The dragon with a chocolate heart was a very good book if I could I would read it again! But I would rate it a 4. It was a book about a dragon called Adventurine ( who is a girl ) had got told by her grandpa that it's better to eat her food than to talk to it and that hinted that you don't talk to humans before eating them, but Adventureine did talk to people and got tricked into drinking a magical hot chocolate and she became human. To put a picture in your head she was a 12-year-old girl with small teeth ,no fire, no gigantic wings and no claws to use in battle. But now she craves chocolate and finds an apprenticeship in a chocolate factory just so she can eat some chocolate . As I said a fab book and I would recommend it, good job Stephanie Burgis.

Eliza from Westgate primary school:

Aventurine is a young dragon who gets tricked into eating a food mages hot chocolate. She drinks the hot chocolate and turns into a human who lives in Dachenburg. Her family comes looking for her and eventually finds her.

I recommend this book for age 9 and above. My personal opinion is that I wouldn't normally pick up a fantasy book, but because it was so well written, I believed it all the way through. It was also described with every little detail so I new exactly what was going on. I loved this book and I will definitely read it again.

Maizy from Kippax Greenfield primary school:

This was an adventurous book and I would recommend it for other people. It was about a boy who wanted to prove his grand father wrong and say that dragons were real. He went to the mountains with his big brother Jasper, in which case he didn’t want to go. However, the fierce dragon was tricked into drinking a enchanting chocolate and became a person. I loved this book and I want over people in the world to read it too.

Lois from Otley All Saints CofE Primary School:

I thought that the first couple of chapters were boring and I didn't really enjoy it , but it got better in the middle and towards the end .My favorite character would be Aventurine because she is very determined and likes things to go her own way.Also the description was very good like when people made her mad ,the author put about how Aventurine had to keep her inner dragon inside of her .The main thing I didn't like about it was that some of the chapters introduced a character and then 3 chapters would be about that person and then a new character would be introduced ,and then near the end of the book a character that was introduced ages ago would be in it again and they didn't really connect.Also it was a bit confusing at places .I would recommended it to people who like fantasy ,chocolate,dragons,magic and heroes . I am now currently reading, who let the gods out

Ellie from Swillington primary :

I love this book.There are 245 pages and each is a cliff hanger.It is a mythical book, where a dragon called Adventurine who leaves the cave,not following her mothers rules which leads to a disastrous problem which includes a transformation between dragon and human.Read this book to see if Adventurine will be able to sort things out and be with her family as a dragon again. The main characters are Adventurine dragon/human,Silke the girl who without even knowing,became friends with a dragon,Marina, a woman who is kind and tough she also workes at the chocolate heart and Horst a man who workes at the chocolate heart and was not keen on Adventurine at first. The main settings are the cave,streets of Drachenburge, town hall and the Chocolate Heart. My favourite parts are when Adventurine finds her passion as a human and when she makes food for the King and his family. I would recommend this book to others who like mythical stories,dragons and chocolate. If you do,this is a book for you.

Johnny from Westgate Primary:

'The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart' is a deliciously heart-warming read, which makes you desperate to turn the chocolate coated pages. All 245 pages are packed full of excitement, magic and sugary confectionery.

When Aventurine,the fear-some dragon, is tricked by a food mage into eating enchanted chocolate, she transforms into a puny human girl. In her new form, Aventurine searches Drachenburg for her new-found passion: chocolate.
