I really loved Toothless, and I look forward to reading the rest of this series now. I give this book ten out of ten.

Yes, I would recommend this book to my friends. My favourite character is Toothless; I think he is adorable. I think grown ups would like it because it's very funny.

Can Hiccup pass the dragon Initiation programme?????

Hiccup (the main character) is very wimpy and week at the start of this book, but he is brave at the end. I would recommend this book to people who like animals

I really enjoyed this book because Hiccup has to learn to be a hero the hard way! Prepare your self for the extraordinary bravery of Toothless.

I would partially recommend this book to other people. I didn't really like it because it was really action packed. I like action packed books.

This was a good book about a boy called Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the third and his tiny Dragon called Toothless trying to become heroes. My favourite character is Toothless, he is a Dragon species that may or may not be a real species called the Toothless Daydream. He is really stubborn and he won't do what Hiccup says and even though he seems like every other Dragon (Dragons are never grateful!) he secretly likes Hiccup, but that doesn't mean he isn't really stubborn at the same time. It does have quite tricky old fashioned words in it, but I still really liked it! I would recommend it for readers ages 8-14.

The book was adventurous and hilarious. I mostly liked the part when Toothless was getting trained by Hiccup before Thorsday Thursday.

Amazing book about a little Viking with a long name: Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, Hope and Heir to the Tribe of the Hairy Hooligans. He has to pass the dragon initiation programme or GOBBER THE BELCH (who always shouts) will send him off to exile. The first part of the initiation course is that he has to catch a dragon. But what type will he get? A common or garden? A Gronicle? A rare Toothless Daydream? Read the book to find out! P.S. Cressida Cowell, the author, has a gold Blue Peter badge! That is a high achievement, so don't judge the book by its cover! I didn't think I'd like them, but my BFF persuaded me to read one, and then I loved them!
