Review:

The penultimate book in the popular series. * The Schools Advertiser * If you haven't discovered How To Train Your Dragon you are missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature. * The Guardian * A smart, funny read that will keep children on the edges of their seats. * Daily Express * Cressida Cowell's 11th and penultimate volume in the phenomenal How to Train Your Dragon series. * Sunday Times * Embellished with plenty of the clashing fonts, ink blots and scribbly pencil drawings that make this series of books so unique. How To Betray a Dragon's Hero takes the saga to a completely new level and is an enormously enjoyable read. * Bookbag * Exciting adventures, great characters and plenty of jokes and funny drawings make Hiccups adventures some of our favourite books. * tBk Mag * As gripping and as rousing as ever... as with the best children's literature, these books are about much bigger things: endurance, loyalty, friendship and love. And Cowell's illustrations and visual storytelling enhance the action no end. * The Daily Telegraph * By turns hilarious and wise, it's never predictable, brilliantly illustrated and always delightful. * The Times * Always thrilling, funny and brilliantly illustrated. * Daily Express * Ceaselessly inventive... young readers are lucky to have her. ***** * Books For Keeps * Especially good... raises the series to classic status. * Times * Top stuff. * Daily Telegraph * '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 * 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 * 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 * As gripping and as rousing as ever...as with the best children's literature, these books are about much bigger things: endurance, loyalty, friendship and love. And Cowell's illustrations and visual storytelling enhance the action no end * The Daily Telegraph * As gripping and as rousing as ever...as with the best children's literature, these books are about much bigger things: endurance, loyalty, friendship and love. And Cowell's illustrations and visual storytelling enhance the action no end * The Daily Telegraph * PRAISE FOR THE HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON BOOKS:'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 * Exciting adventures, great characters and plenty of jokes and funny drawings make Hiccup's adventoures some of our favourite books * tBK Mag * Exciting adventures, great characters and plenty of jokes and funny drawings make Hiccup's adventoures some of our favourite books * tBK Mag * Exudes relentless energy...embelished with plenty of the clashing fonts, ink blots and scribbly pencil drawings that make this series of books so unique...takes the saga to a new level and is an enormously enjoyable read * The Bookbag * Exudes relentless energy...embelished with plenty of the clashing fonts, ink blots and scribbly pencil drawings that make this series of books so unique...takes the saga to a new level and is an enormously enjoyable read * The Bookbag * There is heartfelt emotion behind the jokes and wild pencil drawings * The Sunday Times * There is heartfelt emotion behind the jokes and wild pencil drawings * The Sunday Times * A smart, funny read that will keep children on the edge of their seats * Daily Express * A smart, funny read that will keep children on the edge of their seats * Daily Express *
