How To Train Your Dragon is a series of children’s fantasy novels by British author Cressida Cowell. The main character in the series is Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, a Viking who acts first and thinks second. He’s one of the only humans who can speak Dragonese. A film adaptation of the first book was released by DreamWorks in 2010 and was a box office success, making way for a sequel as well.

Although not officially part of the series in the truest sense of the word, the How To Train Your Dragon series began with the picture book Hiccup the Seasick Viking in 1999. The series officially kicked off in 2003 with How To Train Your Dragon. Below is a list of Cressida Cowell’s How To Train Your Dragon books in order of when they were originally released:
