Best-selling Cressida Cowell adds a must-have new title to her series. All kinds of facts about dragons and their world and advice about how to manage the big creatures are included. The whole dragon world is brought gloriously to life in Cressida Cowell’s brand new colour illustrations.
Long ago, the world was full of dragons. But what happened to them? Where are they now? These pages are taken from the notebooks of Viking Hero Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third when he was just a boy. A keen dragonwatcher, Hiccup paints a picture of the brilliance and fire and spirit of that lost dragon world.
Featuring dragon profiles, dragon anatomy, dragon riding tips and lots more must know info e.g. how to spot the difference between an arsenic adderwing and a glow worm (you don't want to mix those two up) and what to do when confronted with a Hellsteether. This is a must for all keen dragonwatchers out there...
How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits cinemas in July 2014 starring Gerrard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill.
