How To Train Your Dragon Movies & Books

Have you ever read the book “How to Train Your Dragon,” or seen the movie? I would highly recommend both! Cressida Cowell is the author of the series of 12 chapter books in the How to Train Your Dragon series along with

three other books that relate to the series. In both the movie and the books the two main characters, Hiccup and Toothless, have many adventures together.

In this series of books, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III catches and trains a dragon, Toothless. Hiccup is the son of the chief of the Hairy Hooligans and has many adventures as he learns how to train Toothless. Hiccup is much

different than his father and learns how to become a hero in his own way.


If you choose to watch the movies and read the books, you should see what differences you can find. One difference is that in the movie Toothless is large enough for Hiccup to ride him, but in the book, Toothless

is tiny enough to fit in Hiccup’s arms. Also, some of our favorite characters from the movie are not characters in the books. These include Astrid, Barf and Belch, Ruffnut and Tuffnut, Snotlout and Hookfang. There are many other

Vikings and dragons in the books that aren’t in the movie, too.


Anyone who loves dragons as much as I do will love this series of books. “How to Train Your Dragon 3” is scheduled to be released in March 2019, so read the series before the next movie comes out.
