Read the original books before you see the How to Train Your Dragon film!


THE STORY CONTINUES in the second volume of Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs ...

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. Hiccup's memoirs look back to when Hiccup was just an ordinary boy, and finding it very hard to be a Hero.

Can Hiccup find Grimbeard the Ghastly's treasure before Alvin the Treacherous gets his sneaky hands on it? And if Hiccup opens a box that says DO NOT OPEN, will he live to tell the tale?

How to Train Your Dragon is soon to be a DreamWorks film starring Gerrard Butler, America Ferrera and Jonah Hill, out in March 2010 adapted from the best selling How to Train Your Dragon series by Cressida Cowell.


Read the rest of Hiccup's exploits in the How to Train Your Dragon series in How to Train Your Dragon, How to Speak Dragonese, How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse, How to Twist a Dragon's Tale, A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons, How to Ride a Dragon's Storm, and How to Break a Dragon's Heart.

Review:
This is a maniacally crazy story liberally spattered with appropriately riotous illustrations, lists and maps (Books For Keeps)

It's a wonderfully vibrant story, illustrated with the author's hilarious drawings, and told with a delightfully gobby sense of humour (Books Quarterly (Waterstones))

Cowell is a new star in children's fiction (The Times)

Great jokes and suberb characters will appeal to boys and girls alike (With Kids)

Very funny indeed (Maidenhead Advertiser)

'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 children's editor)

Witty writing and funny drawings and notes ensure that this clever Viking story keeps its readers laughing (Junior Education)

A wonderful adventure (The School Librarian)
