Read the HILARIOUS books that inspired the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films!

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup’s father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the Hope and the Heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne – but most of the time Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy, finding it hard to be a Hero.

Trapped on The American Dream II with his friends Fishlegs and Camicazi, Hiccup must ESCAPE the barbarian Norbert the Nutjob, and somehow dodge the cruel Polar-serpents in the icy waters below.
If ONLY Hiccup hadn’t promised to help the Wanderer slaves on board escape too! HOW will Hiccup save himself, his friends and a hundred and twenty-two Wanderers off a ship WITHOUT their terrifying captors noticing?

How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks franchise starring Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill and the TV series, Riders of Berk, can be seen on CBeebies and Cartoon Network.

Reviews

Amanda Craig, The Times
Irresistably funny, exciting and endearing
Sunday Herald, Glasgow
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.
Books for Keeps
'This fast paced adventure is packed with hilariously named characters and mythical monsters that will grab any young boys attention.'
Amanda Craig, The Times
'... inspired series ... its enchantment lies primarily in the comical, affectionate and often irritable relationship between Hiccup (the only nerd in the violent Viking Hooligan tribe) and his runty little dragon Toothless.'
The Financial Times
... raucous and slapstick ... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps.
Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
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.
Books for Keeps
[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.
Family Interest
A funny and outrageous story that will appeal to even the most reluctant reader
The Times
A hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes
The Times
'genius'
Waterstones Books Quarterly
'... full of charm ... imaginative and bursting with inventive, off-the-wall humour, making them great stories to be read aloud.'
First News
Scary, crazy... and very funny.

'another triumph from the creative pen of Cressida Cowell.'

Julia Eccleshare, Guardian children's editor
'If you haven't discovered Hiccup yet, you're missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature.'
The Times
A hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes

Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful.

Amanda Craig, The Times
'Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it.'
The Herald
'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal Cowells anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.'
