PRAISE FOR THE HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON BOOKS:
'Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it.'

(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)

After flagging a little in the intermediate books, Cressida Cowell's saga has hit its stride with a vengeance in the two latest. Perhaps the film has given her a shot in the arm, even though it was so very loosely based on the books (good, but very little to do with them)? My son is fed up that those who purchase the early books now get character cards thrown in, whereas those who have been loyal followers of Hiccup from the beginning (and bought them all pre-film) miss out. However, we are both pleased that CC is keeping to her own individual course with these stories, not bending to the film's style.

The story has got much bigger and more cosmic, and some of the efforts to re-incorporate all the plot-points of the earlier books as aspects of the new Titanic Struggle are inevitably a bit forced. And there seem to be even more species of dragons than there are beetles ... some of us are losing track. Still, this is a great page-turner. Hiccup prioritises finding his friend Fishlegs over seeking the Dragon's Jewel, and secretly infiltrates the Slavelands. There he finds his fellow Vikings searching for amber - and something more valuable still - on the endless red sands, where lurks a menace even scarier than the inrushing tide ... How will the story of Fishlegs's past impact on Hiccup's quest? Will the revolting Snotlout finally get his come-uppance? Will Hiccup manage to bring peace before Vikings and dragons wipe each other out, and will Toothless the dragon ever grow any less annoying? Find out some of the answers here.

My daughter, 10, my son, 7 and I are gripped. We're about 3/4 of the way through. All the pieces of the story so cleverly built up over the other books are coming together in crazy, brilliant excitement. I almost get mobbed when I have to stop reading each night. Please don't let it be the last book!

This is a fantastic children's series. My son - initially a reluctant reader - has loved and devoured them, and will still read them now he has reached his teenager phase.

I think it's been flagging a bit in the last couple of books, but this one - whilst not (in my view) reaching the inspired 5* lunacy of the first four and sixth books - picks up the pace a bit more and sets things up nicely for the next and final volume. Good to see Thuggory the Meathead again - I've always wondered why he didn't appear after book 1.

My daughter has read all of these books and is eagerly waiting for the next installment due out in September. She is now fluent in dragonese. Lovely characters - hero's that don't have super powers or are the best at everything - just brave and true to their friends and are smart and compassionate. Has had both me and my daughter also laughing out loud - Camacazi and toothless are especially funny. Good role models for girls and boys alike - good adventures, lots of excitement and fantasy but with great heart. Brilliant.

The main character is Hiccup. We've followed his adventures in the "How to train your Dragon" series. He is the hero and that's why he is my favorite character. He is now an outlaw because evil Alvin the treacherous is King of the Vikings. He is on a quest to find the dragon jewel, and he has to search in the most guarded places. My favorite part of the book is when the monster with eyes on his fingers grabs Hiccup. It is dramatic and exciting and you can't wait to see what happens next. I absolutely love it! by Oscar age 7
