    • This book was so much fun! Between the artwork, the creativity behind the dragons, and all the doodles and ramblings from Hiccup, this is a great addition to the How to Train Your Dragon series. I freaking loved it. I mean, it has an entire page about dragon poo. And it goes into detail about all the different types of dragons. There are charts and stats and tips and tricks. And it was just fun to read and the artwork is amazing. I didn't cry or anything. Nope. So beautiful.


    • This is a fun quick read full of "childish" drawings of all dragon kinds. It is very detailed on some of them and a little less detail for others, all include some handy rating on fear factor, and other attributes of the dragons.


    • To be honest, this book was kinda boring. It doesn't contain much information that we didn't already know from reading the actual series. There were some new dragons, but the info was kinda dry.It's basically a book with a list of dragons and their stats according to Hiccup.The map in the back was awesome, though. And Hiccup's final thoughts were intriguing. I made me all, "What?! What's gonna happen?" Made me thirst to find out and at the same time scared to hahaJust for that tidbit I'd still r [...]


    • Okay, yes, I'm giving these books a high rating cause I'm a huge fan of HTTYD, but I still really like them even thought they are more for kids (boys in general). I was expecting this book to be corny but to my surprise it had full color pages and lots of information. I will say Cressisda Cowell does not draw people very well but she can draw dragons. A lot better than I can too. I'm just amazed at how many species of dragons she has created. Each one is so unique. Some are weird and some are a [...]


    • I liked the idea behind it that a young boy was writing this. There are so many dragons in here it is hard to get a grip on. I imagine that they all are incorporated within the other books as well. I especially enjoyed the pages about the dragon poop. It just seems so logical that the Monstrous Nightmare poo is always on fire.


    • This book is beautifully put together.It is very much a handbook rather than a novel. The book goes through various types of dragons and information on their language, nesting, and other topics. There isn't really a plot. It is more of a journal with the hauntings of a story.But the thing I enjoyed most was the illustrations. There are pictures and drawings on pretty much every page. I loved the dragon illustrations. They were really cool.This is definitely nothing like the movie aside from the [...]


    • Being a fan of the movies and dragons in general, I bought this book. While you may only recognize some dragons (and characters) from the movies, you can clearly see what elements Dreamworks used in adapting the original series to the big screen and those were fun to find as I came across them. I loved the unique artwork and the way that even as an encyclopedia-type book, it also kinda read like a story. It was a quick read (maybe a couple hours) and sometimes it even held my nephew's attention [...]


    • Needed something easy to read while overwhelmed with work and life and this certainly fit the bill! It is cute and entertaining, and made me want to read the How To Train Your Dragon booksWould definitely recommend for any and all kids. Everyone should love dragons.


    • I absolutely loved reading this book! My son is obsessed with HTTYD and we would read some pages out of this every night at bed time! The descriptions, names and illustrations kept him glued to every page! Such a fun read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5


    • If you like the artwork and the funky species of dragons in the series, you'll love this! Also, Hiccup worked on this while a war was going on. Get your priorities straight, boy!


    • The illustrations here are great. As expected, I wasn't as enthralled with this informational book as I was with the main story, but this is a great companion.




    • Pretty safe to say that if I could go back in time to this past Summer for a moment, I would tell myself "Hold on there, me. I know you love the HTTYD movie but believe me, that won't do it. Come back to this book when you've read the rest of the book series." It most definitely is a companion to the book series.I can imagine that if I was a fan of the series I'd probably give this book at least a 4/5. The illustrations are very captivating. The use of colors are fantastic and the art style is r [...]


    • My four year old adores the How to Train Your Dragon movies. He thinks dragons are awesome and likes to pretend he is a dragon. When we found out there was a book series, we had to check it out. This is the first one we bought, because it is full of color photos alongside the writing, which is laid out like Hiccup's own journal. My son will get the book out and just look at the pictures and occasionally ask me what the dragon's name is that he is looking at. Unfortunately, most of the dragons ar [...]


    • I haven't previously had any experience with this series, and grabbed this on a whim. I figured it would give me a taste of what the book series had to offer, and it's always fun to read about dragon varieties.Not having much experience with these books, I was surprised to see how different they are from the movies. It was definitely not an unpleasant surprise, and it definitely increased my interest in the novels. The illustrations are cute and ferocious from page to page, the work put into the [...]


    • Fun! This is the first book in the series I've actually read instead of listening to the David Tennant narrated audio book. The hard cover version of this book is well crafted with a sturdy appealing cover, thick glossy pages, and loads of illustrations. Honestly, the art isn't awesome, but there is still something appealing about it. It's also consistent with what I might expect from your average 12 3/4 year-old boy (The supposed author). While the main text is typed, there are also plenty of h [...]


    • I liked the book, a lot of information, like an enciclopedia, the drawings and the handwriting are intriguing. Also I liked the Dragonese section.Now, here is the issue with what I am dealing with, because I have read the Draconomicon. Due to reading the Draconomicon, I felt the information somehow incomplete and more fantastic. Of course, I am comparing a guide with a more complex lore with this guide which is related to Hiccup's world. Maybe it is necessary that I read the whole saga so I can [...]


    • the different types of dragons with their strengths and weaknesses listed and a general description along with an illustration. it even goes into the different types of eggs, defacation, whether they are sky/sea, etctype dragons. how to take care of them. what they are good for. how to ride them. which to use for fighting,etccommended for those into: how to train your dragon series/movies, Dragon lovers, Viking lovers.


    • i liked this book a lot it was a quick read took me about two hours to finish it had a lot of information about dragons which was interesting to read about the only thing that i thought they should've of had was a page or so about night furys they don't even say in the book that toothless was a night fury that is the only bad thing i had to say about the book


    • Very funny and informative. Cowell's imagination is as incredible as her charming illustrations. There are so many cool dragons I can't even pick one to be my favourite. Perhaps the golphin, or the marsh tiger Or, wait a minute: the silver phantom! Ahhh, to ride a silver phantom *starry-eyed*


    • A must for any HTTYD book lover. Comes with beautiful illustrations, nicely glossed pages, some hilarious anecdotes, and a few incredibly emotional messages from young Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third regarding the fated future of the dragon species.


    • El último libro que leí de la serie aunque no es propiamente parte de ella. Es hermoso. Nostalgia a todo lo que da.



    • Kind of like a story in some parts, like when it told you about nesting grounds and stuff, but mostly it's just a guide.


    • I don't really know what to say about this little book. It's cute and fun and if you're a fan of HTTYD then it's a great companion to the series.



    • Very knowledgeable about some of the dragons characters in the series. But is is a little short on a few details.
