How to train your dragon



By Cressida Cowell

This book was incredibly funny. It is about Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the III who is a Viking in training. In this book Hiccup’s first task is to get a dragon to train.

Everything goes terribly wrong when Hiccup’s fellow trainee, Fishlegs, upsets all the dragons and Hiccup (who is the son of the Chief of the Hairy Hooligans) gets the most common of all dragons -- a garden dragon.

I found this book particularly funny because of the names of the characters Dogsbreath, Toothless, Clueless, Snotlout and Fishlegs. With its wacky plot weird ways and nutty names it is a joy to read for any one any age.
