“How to Train Your Dragon” by Cressida Cowell Review

How to Train Your Dragon (How to Train Your Dragon, #1)How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

We just had to read this, the original book, after realizing the power that is How to Train Your Dragon by DreamWorks. And so we discovered…

Ach! What craziness! My sister and I were laughing our brains out in just the first three pages. So hilariously funny, and then BAM! the deep stuff at the end. Cressida Cowell is a master at humor. And then there’s the occasional beautiful, poetic description that just rounds out the genius of this story. No wonder the makers of the movie were so inspired. There’s so much to explore in this world and in these characters. The theme is a beautiful one, too — what real Heroism is, and what selflessness is. No wonder this came up in the movie so sublimely and powerfully. The books do explore it.

Now I can’t wait to see what the rest of the series has in store!
