This is the book that made me decide to collect books. How to Train your Dragon is one of the best books I have ever read, second only to Diary of a Wimpy Kid. It has very nice artwork,which is a bit scribbly, giving the book an extra childish charm. A lot of the humor comes from the oddly named characters, such as Hiccup, Snotnose and Gobber. The book is about Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, a young boy trying to train a dragon. He meets Toothless, a very small Common Dragon. And get this, Toothless has.........ABSOLUTELY NO TEETH, making him look a bit of a wimp. All the other kids have much stronger or faster dragons, but none of them have a good attitude, except for Toothless. Cressida Cowell did a fantastic job writing this fantastic novel. Congratulations Mrs. Cowell!
