I recently had the pleasure of reading How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell, and I can confidently say that this book is an absolute must-read even for adults, but yes completely geared toward children. Set in a Viking-themed world, this book follows the story of Hiccup, an awkward but courageous young Viking. He embarks on a journey to prove himself to his tribe by training a dragon and protecting his home from danger.
The writing of How to Train Your Dragon is superb. Cressida Cowell's writing is vivid and captivating, drawing the reader into Hiccup's world. The characters are unique, lovable, and full of personality. Hiccup's journey is full of adventure, excitement, and discovery. I was especially impressed with the themes of courage, friendship, and determination explored throughout the story.
One of my favorite aspects of the book was its clever and witty humor. Cowell's writing is filled with clever jokes, puns, and witticisms. It was a joy to read and made the story that much more enjoyable.
All in all, I highly recommend How to Train Your Dragon to you or your child. Whether you're a fan of fantasy, adventure, or comedy, this book has something for everyone. It's a captivating story with a unique setting and characters, and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
