Toothless the Dragon, translated from the Dragonese by Cressida Cowell
If you have not yet been introduced to the book series that How to Train Your Dragon, stop what you are doing now and begin the series today. Amazon suggests the reading age is eight to eleven-years-old, but they are liars and fools. These imaginative and fantastic novels tell a story about becoming a hero despite being ordinary in every way. Don’t we all want to be a little more heroic in our everyday lives?
This novella written from the point-of-view of Toothless is just as magical as the rest of the series. I urge every adult to read this series – if only to remember how to be swept away into a land of imagination for a little while. This short story is great to fill your lunch hour with a bit of magic so that you can return to work happy and smiling.
This series and this novella make for an enchanted time spent with your family or just with Cowell’s words.
