The Lovereading4Kids comment
More hilarious fun as Hiccup the Viking continues his pirate training programme enduring the disgusting food, learning dragonese and now getting lost in the Library Labyrinth with the Driller Dragons and Madguts the Murderous on the Prowl. Following both words and pictures creates a fabulous and fantastical words of dragons, Vikings and general chaos. Luckily, the inclusion of a dragonese dictionary means readers can make sense of it all. Just!

-out-loud books, they will convert even the most reluctant reader to take their first dip Times Eductaional Supplement 'a hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.
'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal ... Cowell's anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.'
'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.'
'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 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 ... 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 Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. Independent on Sunday 'funny, outrageous and will lure in the most reluctant reader.'
'If you haven't discovered Hiccup yet, you're missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature.'
