How to Train Your Dragon: How To Speak Dragonese

How to Train Your Dragon: How To Speak Dragonese

Read the HILARIOUS books that inspired the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films!

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup’s father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the Hope and the Heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne – but most of the time Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy, finding it hard to be a Hero.


When Hiccup’s dragon Toothless is captured by Romans, only Hiccup and his friend Fishlegs can rescue him. But things get WORSE, when the Romans steal Hiccup’s precious book HOW TO SPEAK DRAGONESE and Hiccup and Fishlegs are taken off to the Fortress of Sinister!

Now they must save Toothless AND themselves – but how can they possibly escape?

How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks franchise starring Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill and the TV series, Riders of Berk, can be seen on CBeebies and Cartoon Network.

Vikings, dragons, Romans and mayhem cavort across the pages in their usual irreverent and hilarious style
School Librarian
These Hiccup stories are a sure-fire hit with children aged 6 and over. Full of quirky, child-like illustrations, they sparkle with humour and wit. The adventure is rip-roaringly fast and will engage from the very first page

'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
'Irresistably funny, exciting and endearing'
Amanda Craig, The 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
A super story, inventive, ingenious, perpetually surprising. One to cherish.
Armadillo, Spring 2003
A wonderfully wittily written and illustrated story.
Waterstones Quarterly Magazine
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
... 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
Cowell brings Hiccup to life in this silly and delightful little novel.

Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful.
