'a hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.' (Amanda Craig, Times)
'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal ... Cowell's anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.' (The Herald)

Irresistably funny, exciting and endearing (Amanda Craig, The Times)
CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK: 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)
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. (Sunday Herald, Glasgow)
... raucous and slapstick ... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps. (The Financial Times)
[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)
Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. (Independent on Sunday)

My only issue on the Kindle edition, the text size is fixed. you cannot increase the text size and when reading on a Kindle Paperwhite the text is a real struggle to read as it is too small. There is a reason. The book is heavily illustrated, and reflowing the text would ruin the placement of the pictures. Reading it on the iPad Kindle app is perfect however.
Cressida Cowell's stories are amazing and my goodness I don't think they could have found anyone better to narrate them than David Tennant! The voices he uses to depict the different characters are all amazing...the only problem I have is that my children expect me to do the same voices...I've gotten pretty good at Gobber!
If you are new to the series I would recommend you start with How to Train Your Dragon otherwise the back story with Alvin (the poor-but-honest-farmer) will be lost on you...I should also like to make you aware that you can get these from your local library at no cost although the 10 pounds you pay here is well worth it.
