How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell is of course the story about a young viking boy trying to train a dragon, but that’s about all it has in common with the movie based on it. Fortunately, it is narrated by David Tennant (yes, Dr. Who!) and is therefore amazing (and thank you so much to Shae for convincing me of this fact!). Even though Toothless is small and green and Hiccup nerdy and adorable in a different way, fans of the movie will almost certainly love the book for its own wonderful storyline.
Note: I listened to How to Train Your Dragon on audiobook, which significantly influences my experience with it.
