"If you're pining for Toothless (and who could blame you?) then feast your eyes on some gorgeous art from the film..." --Empire
"This book is absolutely wonderful... must-have for every animation fan. The art is absolutely spectacular." --Rotoscopers
"The location artwork is stunning and the drawings of the beasts are both fantastic and fantastical. It's a great companion piece and, rather than acting as a spoiler, it really makes me want to see the film." --The Cult Den
"A rich and detailed tome...an exemplary tome, too. While most Making Of books tend to focus on the visual side and omit all-important text, here there are plenty of quotes, as well as artists credits for each and every image. There s even a nifty app available...something that makes a good book even better."--Imagine FX
"For animation fans...this book is a real treat." --The Huffington Post
"We ve talked a lot about how art of books fall slightly short of expectation every time but this one finally nails it. It is gloriously jam-packed with every inch of space covered in something interesting... This book has set a new high standard for Art of books and I m now really looking forward to seeing all these ideas come to life in the film." -- --Filmwerk
