    Cressida Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon series is hugely popular all over the world and has already spawned two massive Dreamworks films. Now, your children can get their hands on the first 10 books following the adventures of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and the ever-faithful Toothless for an unbelievable Book People price.

    Hiccup may well have grown up to be the greatest Viking hero who ever lived but it wasn't always like that.

All that changes when he decides to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet. It's here where he finds Toothless and the duo begin an incredible journey.

    These appealing stories combine action, drama and a real warmth as they focus on Hiccup and his family as they grow up and enjoy all sorts of incredible adventures, battling evil enemies along the way. Your children will laugh, cry and be eagerly reaching for the next book as they work their way through this fantastic collection.

    When William and Emily Cabbage come to stay at the Hall - along with a ghostly mouse called Ishmael - Ada is relieved to have some company and find her loneliness drifting away. But that's just the start, soon, the new friends find themselves unravelling a dastardly plot that the gamekeeper has planned...
