How to Train Your Dragon


By Cressida Cowell

A new edition of the first in this hugely popular and very funny series about Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. He's Viking royalty in training and has to prove his worth to his friends and relatives. His tiny dragon, Toothless, is of the cute and scaly variety, speaks Dragonese and likes to pretend he doesn't really like Hiccup. Together they take the Viking world by storm, and show everyone that Hiccup is more than capable of being a hero.The book is presented in the style of a memoir written by Hiccup - the author has supposedly translated it “from the Old Norse.” Hiccup's drawings, notes and observations, as well as the titular training manual, are incorporated into the text and successfully gives an interactive element to the reading experience. Easy to read and hilarious! Audio book read by  David Tennant also available giving additional appeal and accessibility to all.
