RRRRRRRR...IT BE THE SECOND BOOK!
on September 24, 2013
So, is this as good as the first How to Train Your Dragon book? Well, yes and no. Yes because it gives us more in the background of Hiccup's life, and no because it's more childish. Now I will say that I am 16 so it's not exactly for my age group, but I have spoken to the author and she said that there are a ton of older readers. The books really didn't take off until the movie was released, at least in the United States. I have a feeling the newer books are a little more grown up, but I don't know cause I haven't got to them yet. Once I have I will add an update to this review below. I would say that if you don't mind a little bit of childish potty humor then you should be fine. A few times I was laughing, but only because of some other jokes. Like I said this book is not targeted at my age group, so I didn't suspect teen humor or regular jokes. It is very corky and a quick read. It is a very good kids book and your children will love it. You will love to read it to them because of how different it truly is. I will defiantly continue reading this series in anticipation for the second movie coming out June 13th 2014!
