    Starring Jay Baruchel, Gerard Butler and Jonah Hill, How to Train your Dragon 2 arrives in cinemas this summer and we just can't wait to see the further adventures of Hiccup and Toothless on the big screen. But if you have a young dragon-whisperer in your household, why not read the books before you see the latest film?

    This is the first of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs and is the book that inspired the first hit film from Dreamworks. Hiccup may now be considered an awesome sword-fighter and the greatest Viking Hero to have ever lived, but he didn't always have this reputation....

    As a child, he wasn't popular nor good at sports and he struggled to make himself heard. But things began to change when he found Toothless, a dragon that quickly became his best friend - a stark contrast to the fearsome dragon enemies he'd grown up believing in...

    Written by Cressida Cowell and suitable for readers aged 7 and over, Hiccup: How to Train Your Dragon is the first book in a series full of action, adventure and laugh-out-loud fun.
