Books for Keeps||'Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it.'
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||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.
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||Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful.
Independent on Sunday||Rollicking fun with a whiff of the past.
Guardian||'If you haven't discovered Hiccup yet, you're missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature.'
