About this deal

Read all about Hiccup and all of your favourite characters, learn to speak Dragonese and train your own dragon to do tricks!

Cressida loves illustrating her own work, but also loves writing books for other people to illustrate as the end result can be so unexpected and inspiring. How to Train Your Dragon is soon to be a DreamWorks film starring Gerrard Butler, America Ferrera and Jonah Hill, out in March 2010 adapted from the best selling How to Train Your Dragon series by Cressida Cowell. Hiccup is able to cause a distraction and escape with Fishlegs, but not before loosing half of his How to Speak Dragonese notebook and Toothless getting captured. The two lads rescue a tiny yet arrogant nanodragon named Ziggerastica, but then they are kidnapped as part of a vicious plot to steal every dragon on the Isle of Berk! So far this is one of the most exciting books in the series, and also one of the most intense, with heart pounding action.Así que se unen para salir del encierro y salvar a sus tribus de una confusión que podría ser mortal. How to Train Your Dragon has sold over 8 million books worldwide in 42 languages and is a major DreamWorks Animation film franchise, as well as being made into a TV series on Netflix and CBBC. But before reading this I suggest reading the first and second book (this one is more necessary to read before reading the third) or parts of the story may be hard to understand if the first couple are not read. La lettura è certamente piacevole e se volete regalare un libro a un bambino di 7/9 anni questo libro è veramente un bel regalo.

After school, Cressida obtained a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, a BA in Graphic Design from St Martins and an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton. Alvin would love to dispatch Hiccup right then and there, but the Fat Consul thinks it would be great entertainment to see the Barbarian children fight in the gladiatorial arena on Saturn's Day Saturday a few weeks hence. However, due to Hiccup's planning with the nanodragon king, Hiccup appears to fly into the air like a God and 'blow' the cage roof off.

I loved the introduction of new characters from other tribes and the ridiculous ways that Hiccup solves problems. Here, the reader is introduced to Hiccup and Fishleg's subpar but loved viking boat, new dragons no matter how tiny that come with a new song, female vikings with superior swordmanship[! I listened to this on audiobook narrated again by David Tennat, it is well worth it if you don't mind missing the art work. But things get WORSE, when the Romans steal Hiccup’s precious book HOW TO SPEAK DRAGONESE and Hiccup and Fishlegs are taken off to the Fortress of Sinister!

Yoto says: Discover the books that inspired the films, bursting with action, humour and deadly dragons, read by David Tennant.To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Cressida is an ambassador for the National Literacy Trust and the Reading Agency, a Trustee of World Book Day and a founder patron of the Children's Media Foundation.

Hiccup reminded me of Artemis Fowl with his plans, his cunning and his fierce intelligence, but he's more positive than Eoin Colfer's flawed (though IMO also very enjoyable! Read the rest of Hiccup's exploits in the How to Train Your Dragon series in How to Train Your Dragon, How to Be a Pirate, How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse, How to Twist a Dragon's Tale, A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons, How to Ride a Dragon's Storm, and How to Break a Dragon's Heart. Hiccup and Fishlegs get bullied in the beginning, manage to mess up their lessons and land somewhere completely different, encounter something/someone, get back but nobody believes them then save the day/themselves.One of my favourite things about these books is the colourfully inventive language that Cowell comes up with - particularly from Ziggerastica. She has a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, a BA in Graphic Design from St Martin's and an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton. Santa brought this book for my son for Christmas this year and it is the ONLY bedtime story I have been allowed to read to him. She is the author and illustrator of the bestselling The Wizards of Once and How to Train Your Dragon books series, and the author of the Emily Brown picture books, illustrated by Neal Layton.
