  About The Book

Reluctant hero Hiccup must rescue his best friend, Fishlegs, from the deadly disease Vorpentitis. The only cure is rare and almost impossible to find...a potato. But where will Hiccup find such a thing? He'll have to dodge the terrible Sharkworms, battle Doomfangs and outwit crazy Hooligans if he's going to be a Hero...again.

A fast paced plot, slapstick humor, witty dialogue and imaginative black and white illustrations enhance this exciting tale.




  Praise

Praise for How to Speak Dragonese:
"There is a lot of raucous humor and mock-heroic dialogue; ridiculous names add to the fun. The them of brains over brawn is well defined."
- School Library Journal

Praise for How to Train Your Dragon:

IRA and CBC Children's Choices List 2005

"Kids will hoot at the ridiculous names and sympathize with Hiccup's exasperation with his truly obstinate but strangely lovable dragon. A delightful read."
- School Library Journal

Cowell, Cressida (1010821)

Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland, where she spent her time writing stories, fishing for things to eat, and exploring the island looking for dragons. She was convinced that there were dragons living on the island and has been fascinated by them ever since.
