I, as an almost middle aged man, have read this series, and loved every minute of Hiccup's adventures! Then I looked forward to the days when my kids were old enough to be interested in them with me; and so quickly my 8 year old moved on to reading them enthusiastically on his own.
Great stories for kids from early elementary grades - though there's a little bit of crude humor. No worse than I think most kids experience in school, but probably should be previewed and discussed with younger kids.
How to Train Your Dragon: How to Seize a Dragon's Jewel is the most thoughtful and grownup of the books yet. Our good friend Hiccup is growing up, beginning to face more difficult choices, and the Archipelago is at war. Hiccup is dealing with adult questions, a society in change, and in additional to the farcical romp of books 1-9, Hiccup faces choices about right and wrong that are good for older kids to start understanding.
My kids are now 11 and 8. Book 10 was probably right on the edge of being too heavy and morose for our 8 yo but I'd say it's perfect for the 11 year old who can see Hiccup at 14 as not much older than some older friends.
I'm glad this isn't the last book. Just like Hiccup and his friends don't want to imagine a world without dragons, I don't want to imagine a world without a new How to Train Your Dragon to read to my kids.
All in all a great continuation of the series. I enjoy these as much as my children do and am happy to hear that this is not the end of the line for Hiccup.
There is a fair amount of callbacks to earlier books in this installment. Be sure to read the earlier books first (in order) so that it all makes sense.
