Book of the Week: The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis

The Dragon With A Chocolate Heart

First impressions

Book club discussed the front cover and blurb, we thought the story would be an adventure with a very intriguing main character - a dragon! The first paragraph definitely intrigued us and made us want to carry on reading, as it explained how dragons see humans as prey but also as a danger. 

The main character, the dragon Aventurine in the first chapter we thought was very headstrong, determined and felt trapped in her cave. She argued with her older brother and mum - though we thought her mother seemed quite wise and very protective of her family. We learned some interesting new vocabulary too, like philosopher, tract and treatises!
