Review

If you have 6 to 12-year-olds, and you don't know about David Tennant's readings of Cressida Cowell's How To Train Your Dragon series, you don't deserve to be a parent. The Times 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. 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 ... 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 hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.' Amanda Craig, Times Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. Independent on Sunday 'If light amusement is required, Cressida Cowell's How to Break a Dragon's Heart delivers all it promises. There are lots of illustrations and a playfulness with language that will draw in even the most reluctant reader.' Daily Telegraph 'is not only funny, well written and thrilling, but also wise about what we owe those who love us.' The Times 'Ahead of the film of the same title due to be released next March, this is a special edition of the first book in the uproarious series about Viking Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. Highly original, and full of useful tips for dragon-owners everywhere.' Woman's Weekly Top stuff. Daily Telegraph Especially good... raises the series to classic status. Times Ceaselessly inventive... young readers are lucky to have her. ***** Books For Keeps Always thrilling, funny and brilliantly illustrated. Daily Express A modern classic. Cowell is an effortlessly funny writer and is brimming with creativity. Highly recommended. Birmingham Post A delight for 8+. The Times Cowell's loopy, scattershot imagination is as compelling as ever. Financial Times Action and excitement aplenty. Daily Telegraph The most inventive, entertaining and demanding contemporary children's epic. Daily Telegraph (Peter Florence) Gripping adventure stories complete with quests and battles, a vividly imagined alternative world. Daily Telegraph Gloriously funny. The Daily Telegraph
