* A Viking Molesworth in the form of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III.
* A very funny adventure story as Hiccup finds a dragon, trains it and, with its help, manages to subdue two enormous monstrous Sea Dragons. In doing so, he also conquers his bullies, gains the respect of his family and schoolmates and shows his tribe that there can sometimes be more than one way of doing something...
* Written as though by Hiccup, with an author's preface and notes throughout the text, interspersed with his own sketches (black and white line illustrations by Cressida Cowell) as Hiccup builds up more helpful reference material for future Viking heroes (the only existing guide to training dragons has three words of text: Shout At It). A similar playfulness and intertextuality as The Stinky Cheese Man.
* Perfect for boys, with lots of humour, dragons, bloodshed, gob and battles.
* Following in the footsteps of Lauren Child with her Clarice books, developing picture book character with real potential to take on a life of his own and bring him to a wider, broader audience, by an author who can work brilliantly on a variety of levels.
A classic. - The Viking Herald
How to Train Your Dragon is a must read for every Hero who is having a little trouble being as Heroic as he would like to be. - The Barbarian Librarian
