How to Train Your Dragon No.1

Review

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an incredible sword-fighter, dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking hero who ever lived. But he wasn't always like that - in fact, in the beginning, Hiccup wasn't fierce, brave or heroic at all. But the arrival of the Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus offers the chance for Hiccup to shine. The ferocious bravado of the other Vikings proves useless, and Hiccup is called upon to save them by using his brains rather than his brawn.Can he defeat the dragon and save the Viking tribe from certain death?

This award-winning story of Vikings and dragons, with its striking black-and-white-illustrations, is enormous fun. Young readers will love Cressida Cowell's sharp wit and humour, and will be keen to follow Hiccup's adventures through the rest of the books in this hugely popular series.
