    Comments about How to Steal a Dragon's Sword:

    My grandson loves the entire series. We have them all now. When he has no other school-related reading at bedtime, this is always the 'go to' book.
    The only trouble is that we may have purchased some out of sequence so sometimes the story is hard to follow because the characters are suddenly younger etc etc.

    PRAISE FOR THE HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON BOOKS:|'Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it.' [Amanda Craig, The Times] CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK: This book is great fun and has a Blackadderish sense of humour ... full of the sort of jokes that will make schoolboys snigger. [Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times] ... raucous and slapstick ... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps. [The Financial Times] [Cressida Cowell] puts a contemporary spin on the old brains over brawn moral and brings the story to a climax with a thrilling dragon duel. Lots for lots of different readers to enjoy. [Books for Keeps] 'a hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.' [Amanda Craig, Times]
