This book was awesome! I’ve seen the movie already, of course, but I wasn’t sure whether the book would be as good as it. After all, I already think that my cat looks like Toothless, and the reason for that is the movie and not the book.

But it really did live up to it, and part of that is because of the way that Cowell stylised the book. The inside includes all sorts of little doodles, illustrations and additional bits and bobs that help to make it leap off the pages and right into your imagination. It makes it more of an artifact than a regular book, and it’ll also bring it to life for younger readers.

And that’s one of the interesting things about it. It’s not just a book for kids, and neither is it a book for adults. Better still, the story line – which follows a young viking as he tries to catch and train a dragon to be awarded his place in viking society – has an almost classical feel, keeping you gripped throughout. And, because it’s the first book in a series, there’s plenty more of it for you to enjoy if you keep on reading. I’m not sure whether I will or not, but I did love this one.
