Review:

'Ahead of the film of the same title due to be released next March, this is a special edition of the first book in the uproarious series about Viking Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. Highly original, and full of useful tips for dragon-owners everywhere.' * Woman's Weekly * 'is not only funny, well written and thrilling, but also wise about what we owe those who love us.' * The Times * 'If light amusement is required, Cressida Cowell's How to Break a Dragon's Heart delivers all it promises. There are lots of illustrations and a playfulness with language that will draw in even the most reluctant reader.' * Daily Telegraph * 'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal Cowells anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.' * The Herald * Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. * Independent on Sunday * 'a hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.' * Amanda Craig, Times * [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. * Sunday Herald, Glasgow * 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 * PRAISE FOR HICCUP:'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.' * 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.' * Amanda Craig, The Times * 'another triumph from the creative pen of Cressida Cowell.' * Writeaway.org * 'With consistently funny stories told in inventive language - including the opportunity to extend your knowledge of Dragonese - these books always entertain.' * Waterstone's Books Quarterly * 'Ahead of the film of the same title due to be released next March, this is a special edition of the first book in the uproarious series about Viking Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. Highly original, and full of useful tips for dragon-owners everywhere.' * Woman's Weekly * '... full of charm ... imaginative and bursting with inventive, off-the-wall humour, making them great stories to be read aloud.' * Waterstones Books Quarterly * '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 * 'Cressida Cowell's splendid series about the nerdy Viking Hiccup and his tiny dragon Toothless remain perennial favourites, and the latest, How to Break a Dragon's Heart is not only funny, well written and thrilling, but also wise about what we owe those who love us.' * Amanda Craig, The Times * These are glorious stories in every way * The Times * 'If light amusement is required, Cressida Cowell's How to Break a Dragon's Heart delivers all it promises.
