The Sunday Telegraph
Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful
Independent on Sunday
A laugh out loud romp of a Viking adventure
Full of bright wit, this is a brilliant book that launched a huge series...a fantastic adventure that explores failure as well as success and weighs the cost of being different against the price of fitting in

Proper modern classics
Sunday Express
Quite simply, Cressida Cowell has an exceptional ability to give children what they like. Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is a Viking who doesn't fit in: gawky and geeky, his adventures with his hunting-dragon Toothless are madcap and marvellous. Give it to a child, and see them become engrossed immediately.

If you haven't discovered Hiccup yet, you're missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature

What we have here is Harry Potter meets Blackadder.
The Glasgow Herald
Pretty much everyone I know who has children adores these audiobooks and have listened to them on many a long (and otherwise fractious) car journey. Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is a famous dragon trainer but he had to learn the hard way. Proper LOL funny as read by former Doctor Who David Tennant, you'll love listening to them too.

Funny, thrilling and ideal for children needing to discover the hero inside themselves
