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 * 'funny, outrageous and will lure in the most reluctant reader.' * The Spectator * Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. * Independent on Sunday * [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 * '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 * 'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal ... Cowell's anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.' * The Herald * 'a hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.' * Amanda Craig, Times * 'exuberantly illustrated ... laugh out-loud books, they will convert even the most relcutant reader to take their first dip.' * Julia Golding, TES * As laugh-out-loud books, they will convert even the most reluctant reader to take their first dip * Times Eductaional Supplement * As laugh-out-loud books, they will convert even the most reluctant reader to take their first dip * Times Eductaional Supplement * Brilliantly funny * Bournemouth Daily Echo * Brilliantly funny * Bournemouth Daily Echo * A book to dip into, with jokes, riddles and everything you wanted to know about Hiccup's world * Publishing News * A book to dip into, with jokes, riddles and everything you wanted to know about Hiccup's world * Publishing News *
