More About the Author

Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland.

She was convinced that there were dragons living on this island, and has been fascinated by dragons ever since. She has a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, a BA in Graphic Design from St Martin's and an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton.

Cressida loves illustrating her own work, but also loves writing books for other people to illustrate as the end result can be so unexpected and inspiring. Cressida has written and illustrated eight books in the popular Hiccup series. The unique blend of child centred humour and sublime prose made Hiccup an instant hit and the series is now published in over 30 languages.

How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks Animation feature film and has received both Oscar and BAFTA nominations for Best Animated Feature and Best Original Score.A sequel is scheduled for release in 2014 and an animated series is launching on the Cartoon Network in 2012.

Also the author of picture books, Cressida has won the Nestle Children's Book Prize 2006 and has been shortlisted for many others. Cressida lives in Hammersmith with her husband and three children.

Brave viking children, crazy dragons, another classic tale from Cressida that will not disappoint Hiccup fans. I would suggest an age of 5-8.
This is one of those books where the adult enjoys reading a chapter a night to their child almost as much as the child. Certainly my 6 yr old daughter and my 40 yr old husband seem to chuckle away at the crazy humour and funny jokes in equal amounts. They have read all 5 previous books and found this one just as good. Written in the same style as the others, if you have enjoyed the previous books, this will meet your expectations. If you have not read the other earlier books, whilst it is not essential they are read in order, perhaps worth considering reading from Bk1 first. Imaginative, fun, gently rude in a silly way, wonderful characters such as Fishlegs and Toothless the dragon along with a new language called Dragonese to learn..

If you're aged 8-9 read the Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third series.With funny phrases and sentences you can't hate it.If you're a mother with stiff kids or a kid who enjoys funny books this is for you. Also consider buying How To Speak Dragonese.

"A Hero's Guide" tells you in detail about sword fighting, gives dragon profiles and it is very funny. The pictures are very funny, like Big Boobied Bertha, and the language grips you because it's full of action words as well as some challenging words that test you and make you a stronger reader.

Stoick the vast, oh hear His name and tremble. Ugh Ugh.
Joe, aged 9

Our 9 year old son just loves the Hiccup books.
He reads them through from cover to cover when they
come through the door. Then I (his mother) read the book
chapter by chapter. I find some parts quite scary so I tell
my son to hold me tight. Even his big sister (14) wants to
listend when I'm reading out loud. The language is rich and
funny. The books always finish with a good parental child connection.

My seven year old son has loved this book and we will definitely be seeking out the others in the series. I have heard him laughing out loud while reading... what better recommendation could there be?

I got the first one for my son as he is reading books very quickly. Bought the whole series, some he read on his own, others we would share reading before bed time. The whole series is fantastic. It is quite enjoyable for kids who are starting to ask questions about how they fit in the world to see how unlikely heroes like Hiccup and Fishlegs manage to adapt time and time again.
Over all it is a thoroughly enjoyable read. The story line is great and we are looking forward to the next installment to find out what happens to Hiccup and friends.

Actually it's a race between his parents and his eight year old sister to see who can read the latest Hiccup book first. Excellent series!
