Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking hero who ever lived - but it wasn't always like that. Hiccup's memoirs look back to when Hiccup was just an ordinary boy, and finding it very hard to be a hero.

Review:

'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 * 'Irresistibly funny, exciting and endearing' * The Times * A maniacally crazy story liberally spattered with . . . riotous illustrations, lists and maps. * Books For Keeps * As the tension mounts, an hilarious and warming story emerges. It cries to be read aloud. * The School Librarian * good holiday reading for any young adventurer * Reading evening post * extraordinary, funny and cool * Tom Dillon, Mill Lane Primary School * Cowell is a new star in children's fiction * The Times * Full of madcap action, to-the-death battles and hysterical Viking tomfoolery An excellent sequel to How to Train Your Dragon, this highly amusing adventure story with a dash of toilet humour is perfect reading for boys and girls alike aged 8-12. * Publishing News * Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. * Independent on Sunday * ... raucous and slapstick... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps. * The Financial 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 * 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 wonderful adventure * The School Librarian * A wonderfully wittily written and illustrated story. * Waterstones Quarterly Magazine * A wonderful adventure * The School Librarian * Witty writing and funny drawings and notes ensure that this clever Viking story keeps its readers laughing * Junior Education * 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 * Witty writing and funny drawings and notes ensure that this clever Viking story keeps its readers laughing * Junior Education * Very funny indeed * Maidenhead Advertiser * Very funny indeed * Maidenhead Advertiser * Great jokes and suberb characters will appeal to boys and girls alike * With Kids * Great jokes and suberb characters will appeal to boys and girls alike * With Kids * Cowell is a new star in children's fiction * The Times * Cowell is a new star in children's fiction * The Times * It's a wonderfully vibrant story, illustrated with the author's hilarious drawings, and told with a delightfully gobby sense of humour * Books Quarterly (Waterstones) * It's a wonderfully vibrant story, illustrated with the author's hilarious drawings, and told with a delightfully gobby sense of humour * Books Quarterly (Waterstones) * This is a maniacally crazy story liberally spattered with appropriately riotous illustrations, lists and maps * Books For Keeps * This is a maniacally crazy story liberally spattered with appropriately riotous illustrations, lists and maps * Books For Keeps *
