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 * A wonderfully wittily written and illustrated story. * Waterstones Quarterly Magazine * A super story, inventive, ingenious, perpetually surprising. One to cherish. * Armadillo, Spring 2003 * 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 * ... one of the most enjoyable and original children's stories I have heard in a long time ... David Tennant reads with outstanding gusto, giving full and varied wellie to the story's rich assortment of Viking and dragon characters. * The Independent * A hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes * The Times * I can't praise this wonderful adventure too highly - in fact, for my money, she's the NEXT BIG THING in children's literature... Read with gigantic gusto by David Tennant, and featuring some shatteringly good sound-effects, this kept us all laughing on the edge of our seats for 3 1/2 hours. * Independent on Sunday * Inspired * The Times * A funny and outrageous story that will appeal to even the most reluctant reader * Family Interest *
About the Author
Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland. She was convinced that there were dragons living on this island, and has been fascinated by dragons ever since. She has a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, a BA in Graphic Design from St Martin`s and an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton. Cressida loves illustrating her own work, but also loves writing books for other people to illustrate as the end result can be so unexpected and inspiring. Cressida has written and illustrated eight books in the popular Hiccup series. The unique blend of child centred humour and sublime prose made Hiccup an instant hit. How to Train Your Dragon is now published in over 30 languages. A DreamWorks Animation feature film is out in March 2010. Also the author of picture books, Cressida has won the Nestle Children`s Book Prize 2006 and has been shortlisted for many others. Cressida lives in Hammersmith with her husband and three children.

I only wish I could put it on my Paperwhite like I can the other 10. (I was able to read it on my Android tablet.)
For some reason this volume alone is restricted to the Kindle Fire devices. CS cited 'publisher restrictions' when I asked why, but that makes absolutely zero sense to me. They were more than happy to refund my money, which was very nice of them, but that obviously doesn't correct the problem of not being able to have the whole series on my Kindle.
I agree with other reviewers that some of the descriptors and name-calling in this series set less-than-ideal examples, but they do provide a valuable opportunity to discuss proper and improper things to say to and about other people. I especially like the opportunity this book and "How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse" present to learn about the real Vikings and their sea voyages. While we were between HTTYD books, I read Leif the Lucky to my son. It has been a great way to sneak in some history lessons by tying them to something he's already interested in.
An annual "friendly" swimming competition turns ugly when the children are kidnapped and dragged across the "Great Western Ocean" to help in discovering the new world. Along the way they encounter slaves, machines warding against sea monsters, and the wildest of inventing barbarians one could ever hope to read about. Despite the obvious insanity of the story line Cowell weaves a tight plot and has the age-appropriate sense of humor to pull it all off on in a narrative that just screams to be read aloud.
This is perfect for younger readers comfortable in their chapter books and seeking some true entertainment and creativity, yet any one of any age still possessing that kid-at-heart quality will get a kick out of this and appreciate the snappy writing and subtle heart.

I keep thinking I can predict the ends for these books, or even the middles. I can't.Read more
