The Dragon With a Chocolate Heart by Stephanie Burgis

Aventurine is a brave young dragon ready to explore the world outside of her family's mountain cave . . . if only they'd let her leave it. Her family thinks she's too young to fly on her own, but she's determined to prove them wrong by capturing the most dangerous prey of all: a human.

But when that human tricks her into drinking enchanted hot chocolate, she's transformed into a puny human without any sharp teeth, fire breath, or claws. Still, she's the fiercest creature in these mountains--and now she's found her true passion: chocolate. All she has to do is get to the human city to find herself an apprenticeship (whatever that is) in a chocolate house (which sounds delicious), and she'll be conquering new territory in no time . . . won't she?

Win it Wednesday: Jacky Ha-ha

Every Wednesday we will give away a new book. For a chance to win, just fill out the form at the bottom of the page and you'll be entered into a drawing. The drawing will run from Wednesday through 11:59 PM Friday and winners will be announced on Mondays. (Note: you must be a Fresno County resident to be eligible for Win it Wednesdays.)

Jacky Ha-Ha by James Patterson and Chris Grabenstein

In twenty years Jacqueline Hart will be a famous comedienne, but right now, she goes by Jacky Ha-Ha, a nickname she's given after her classmates tease her about her stutter. While her mom is away fighting in Iraq, she pranks up a storm at home and school, trying to distract everyone with laughs so they won't notice her speech impediment. Can Jacky survive being forced into the big school play? Or will she be laughed off stage (and not in the good way!)?

Update: Congratulations, Charmione P.!
