Review:

Praise for How to Train Your Dragon: How to Be a Pirate:
"Quick wit and a heroic heart win out over brawn and bravado... but underneath it all, this is [an] exploration of what true heroism and leadership are all about."―Kirkus

"Motifs of deceptive appearances, last-minute escapes, and the merits of inner worth are addressed with humor that is accessible to both reluctant and avid readers."―School Library Journal

Praise for How to Train Your Dragon:
IRA and CBC Children's Choices List 2005
"Short chapters, clever slapstick, kid-pleasing character names and goofy, childlike drawings will keep even reluctant readers turning these pages--and chuckling as they go."―Publishers Weekly

"A narrative rich in dragon muck... genuinely fierce [and] intelligent."―Kirkus

"...This is a goofy and exciting tale of an underdog who proves that brains can be just as important as brawn. Kids will hoot at the ridiculous names and sympathize with Hiccup's exasperation with his truly obstinate but strangely lovable dragon. A delightful read."―School Library Journal

"This hilarious farce will appeal to heroic fiction fans."―Booklist
