    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.

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.

    The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor, And the highwayman came riding- Riding-riding- The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn-door. In Alfred Noyes's thrilling poem, charged with drama and tension, we ride with the highwayman and recoil from the terrible fate that befalls him and his sweetheart Bess, the landlord's daughter. The vivid imagery of the writing is matched by Charles Keeping's haunting illustrations which won him the Kate Greenaway Medal. This new edition features rescanned artwork to capture the breath-taking detail of Keeping's illustrations and a striking new cover.
