Review Quotes



...This is a goofy and exciting tale of an underdog who proves that brains can be just as important as brawn. Kids will hoot at the ridiculous names and sympathize with Hiccup's exasperation with his truly obstinate but strangely lovable dragon. A delightful read.--School Library Journal

Praise for How to Train Your Dragon:
Short chapters, clever slapstick, kid-pleasing character names and goofy, childlike drawings will keep even reluctant readers turning these pages--and chuckling as they go.--Publishers Weekly

A narrative rich in dragon muck... genuinely fierce [and] intelligent.--Kirkus

This hilarious farce will appeal to heroic fiction fans.--Booklist
