Review quote

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 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 [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 ... raucous and slapstick... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps. The Financial Times Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful. Independent on Sunday An excellent sequel to How to Train Your Dragon, this highly amusing adventure story with a dash of toilet humour is perfect reading for boys and girls alike aged 8-12. Publishing News Full of madcap action, to-the-death battles and hysterical Viking tomfoolery Cowell is a new star in children's fiction The Times extraordinary, funny and cool Tom Dillon, Mill Lane Primary School good holiday reading for any young adventurer Reading evening post As the tension mounts, an hilarious and warming story emerges. It cries to be read aloud. The School Librarian A maniacally crazy story liberally spattered with ... riotous illustrations, lists and maps. Books For Keeps 'Irresistibly funny, exciting and endearing' The Times '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
