THE STORY CONTINUES in the third volume of Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs ...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. Climbing on to a Roman Dragon Rustling ship by mistake in your first 'Boarding an Enemy Ship' lesson is bad enough. But to then discover that Alvin the Treacherous is also on board proves to Hiccup he couldn't have been more wrong, especially when he steals his copy of How to Speak Dragonese. Can Hiccup save the dragons and the day? How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks franchise.

    Review quote
    '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 '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 A super story, inventive, ingenious, perpetually surprising. One to cherish. Armadillo, Spring 2003 A wonderfully wittily written and illustrated story. Waterstones Quarterly Magazine 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. Lindsey Fraser, 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 Cowell brings Hiccup to life in this silly and delightful little novel. St Paul Pioneer Press Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. Independent on Sunday 'hilarious' www.writeaway.org 'funny and well writen' Cheri Lloyd 'another fiendishly funny catalogue of disaster' Pet O'Connell We've loved Hiccup's dragon training adventures from the start. (tBk's Top 40 Children's Books) tBk Magazine It's the best book ever! They keep getting better and better. The Guardian
