Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-4ATina loves chocolate more than anything else, "more than birthdays, more than roller skating, and definitely more than dried fruit." When her health teacher, Mrs. Ferdman, makes the class repeat the mantra, "You are what you eat," Tina wishes it would come true. When she wakes up the next morning to find herself transformed, though, she discovers that being chocolate isn't nearly as much fun as eating it. To Tina's great relief, however, she is restored to her normal self the next day, and resolves to give up her favorite treat foreverAright after a giant bowl of Choco-Crunchies. Children will appreciate this story's zany humor, and will particularly enjoy seeing the prim Mrs. Ferdman receive her just deserts. Tina is a spirited heroine who will surely gain the sympathy of anyone who has ever had too much of a good thing. The illustrations, brimming with child appeal, show youngsters at their wacky bestAgrimacing at dried prunes and staring with raised eyebrows at their chocolate classmate. Sly details appear here and there in the paintings: a snake slithers out of someone's desk and Mrs. Ferdman wears earrings shaped like chocolate kisses. Filled with exuberance from start to finish, this story will make a rousing read-aloud.ADawn Amsberry, Oakland Public Library, CA

As chair of the AZ Young Readers' Award, I take great exception to the negative review by a reader in Jersey. In 2000, CHOCOLATINA was nominated by kids for the above award & was voted the winner by over 45,000 kids to be their favorite of 10 nominees. I read this book aloud to approx. 15 classes of K-3 children & each and everytime the response was the same, pure joy! Cries of "read it again" are the highest praise for a book. This story contains humor, just the right amount of scary stuff for young readers but above all, creativity & fantasy. Kids know they won't turn into chocolate so none of the rest of the action would actually take place--give kids some credit! It's a delightfully funny and exceptionally well illustrated story.

I loved the humor in the book and the way it looked from a child's perspective. My daughter loved it so much that she wouldn't let me read any thing else. She memorized it within a week and then would read it outloud to herself even though she can't read yet. I can't wait for a sequel! I also liked the illustrations. Bravo!

I am a substitute teacher and I take this book with me to every job. The kids love it!! It's the perfect length for reading aloud (not too long!) and the pictures are great! I give each character a different voice (Mrs.Ferdman's is the Wicked Witch of the West) I recommend you or your child try that when you read it. It's silly but it's really fun. Grades K-5 love to hear it, but it's good reading for 2-3 graders. Kids want to read more of Chocolatina but this is the only book- hopefully someday there will be another.

My daughter adores this funny, award-winning tale of a girl who loves chocolate so much that one day she turns into a chocolate girl! Clever, wonderful illustrations by Denise Brunkus, and a story that's a pleasure to share again and again.

I was surprised my 3 year old understood anything about this book. I thought for sure reading about a girl that turns into chocolate and having struggles throughout the school day would surely be over the top for my toddler. It wasn't. It became a huge family favorite from the library, until I finally bought it for her 4th birthday. Chocolatina is a pretty brilliant book and feels close to the book The Chocolate Touch by Patrick Catling, except this book is for younger readers. The pictures are fun and if you read it using the right voices I'm sure your children will enjoy it too.

Format: Paperback
I honestly am not sure what made the biggest impression on my three year old son, but he is more than willing to listen to this entire book, as well as finish some of sentences for me. And every day he asks to read it at bed time. This is a fun little book. I enjoy reading it, it makes me smile at the story, but even moreso at my son's response to it. If your child loves chocolate, they may too be a huge fan of Chocolatina.
