Reviews

It's the best book ever! They keep getting better and better. * The Guardian * We've loved Hiccup's dragon training adventures from the start. (tBk's Top 40 Children's Books) * tBk Magazine * 'another fiendishly funny catalogue of disaster' * Pet O'Connell * 'funny and well writen' * Cheri Lloyd * 'hilarious' * www.writeaway.org * Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. * Independent on Sunday * Cowell brings Hiccup to life in this silly and delightful little novel. * St Paul Pioneer Press * [Cressida Cowell] puts a contemporary spin on the old brains over brawn moral and brings the story to a climax with a thrilling dragon duel. Lots for lots of different readers to enjoy. * Books for Keeps * ... raucous and slapstick... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps. * The Financial Times * How to Train Your Dragon is a delightful narrative caper... It offers a challenging read to 11-year-olds, and rewards reading aloud, especially for those who relish an element of theatre at story time. * Lindsey Fraser, Sunday Herald, Glasgow * A wonderfully wittily written and illustrated story. * Waterstones Quarterly Magazine * A super story, inventive, ingenious, perpetually surprising. One to cherish. * Armadillo, Spring 2003 * CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK: 'This book is great fun and has a Blackadderish sense of humour ... full of the sort of jokes that will make schoolboys snigger.' * Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times * 'Irresistably funny, exciting and endearing' * Amanda Craig, The Times * 'If you haven't discovered Hiccup yet, you're missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature.' * Julia Eccleshare, Guardian children's editor * This is book three in the How to Train Your Dragon series.
