The Hiccup series is being rebranded and given a great new look! In January 2010, to coincide with the Dreamworks movie, Hiccup's first three adventures will be relaunched under the series name How to Train Your Dragon. To follow, beginning in April, Books 4-6 will be released once a month leading up to the launch of a new hardcover in July.
Each paperback will be repackaged with new cover art to be more consistent across the series and will feature a different dragon breed on each of their back covers. The books may also be retitled to match the updated series branding.
In Book #7, the new paper-over-board hardcover, Hiccup, everyone's favorite reluctant Viking hero, has three months, five days and six hours to discover America, get back to Berk, save his father, battle Polarserpents and win the annual Inter-Tribal Friendly Swimming Race. Can he do it?
Praise for How to Train Your Dragon "Action-filled and compelling."

Praise for How to Train Your Dragon "Will keep even reluctant readers turning the pages--and chuckling as they go."
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.
