Cressida Cowell's first two books about Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III were published by Little, Brown.
"[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
