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. When he was young, he wouldn't speak up to his father, Stock the Voist, and he certainly couldn't beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball. 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.

    A phenomenon like no other, Harry's incredible journey begins with The Philosopher's Stone. Unhappily living in a cupboard under the stairs at his aunt's, he's visited by a giant called Rubeus Hagrid who delivers the most astonishing news - Harry's a wizard. As he heads to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry makes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger, meets oh-so-wise Professor Dumbledore and the complex Severus Snape and their incredible adventure begins. But evil in the shape of Lord Voldemort is getting ever closer - and the Dark Lord has his sights set firmly on Harry.

    Throughout the seven books, Harry learns what it means to be a Gryffindor student and the value of friendship and trust. The eight films starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint were a record-breaking success and now you can relive the stories where it all began time and time again with this amazing Harry Potter box set - Expecto Patronum!
