Cressida Cowell's first two books about Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III were published by Little, Brown.
"A narrative rich in dragon muck... genuinely fierce [and] intelligent." ""Kirkus""" ..".This is a goofy and exciting tale of an underdog who proves that brains can be just as important as brawn. Kids will hoot at the ridiculous names and sympathize with Hiccup's exasperation with his truly obstinate but strangely lovable dragon. A delightful read." ""School Library Journal""" "This hilarious farce will appeal to heroic fiction fans." ""Booklist""" "[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 "Raucous and slapstick...liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps."--The Financial Times "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 "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 "If you haven't discovered Hiccup yet, you're missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature."--Julia Eccleshare, Guardian "Good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes."--Daily Echo "Vikings, dragons, Romans and mayhem cavort across the pages in their usual irreverent and hilarious style."--School Librarian Praise for "How to Train Your Dragon: "" "IRA and CBC Children's Choices List 2005" ""Short chapters, clever slapstick, kid-pleasing character names and goofy, childlike drawings will keep even reluctant readers turning these pages--and chuckling as they go."
