sometimes they are old classics that you'll

How to Train your Dragon
Meet Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III who is the most put upon Viking in the world. He’s unable to make himself heard at dinner with his father, Stoick the Vast, not
tough enough to beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball
(the number one school sport) and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet... It's time for Hiccup to learn how to be a Hero.
Kaylee-Beth, aged 9, thinks
What a wonderful book! I love the way it was written and how stubborn Toothless is. I think that I would love to have the chance to train a dragon although it is not as easy as it sounds in this book. Cressida Cowell is now added to my favourite author list and I feel like reading the rest of her books. My favourite part of the story is at the beginning when Fishlegs forgot his dragon and Hiccup had to go and get one for him! Although Toothless is cute he is quite a handful!
Kaylee-Beth liked it! She rated
Evie, aged 7, thinks
I liked this book as it was very funny.
My favourite part was when the green
death dragon exploded! You could really
get a picture in your head because the
author used so many adjectives and
Evie loved it! She rated
Penny, the book club editor, thinks
At first I thought this book was just for boys – but it’s not. It is great fun. I felt really sorry for Hiccup at the beginning, but all his adventures training his dragon are absolutely brill! Toothless is perhaps the stupidest dragon you’ll ever meet but I fell in love with him. I now want a dragon!
