    Art of How To Train Your Dragon gets an A+!

    If you enjoyed the film as much as I did, then you'll love this book. The book contains hundreds of pieces of art, and they vary from concept art to movie stills. I am a big fan of animated films, so to be able to see the different designs each character went through was amazing. Quotes from the directors and crew are also included, and it is cool to see what the production team was thinking about during the making of the movie. The book is amazing and a must have for How To Train Your Dragon and animation fans.

    Above and beyond expectations

    I loved the movie, and anyone else who did will love this artbook. It has so much, and the initial character designs blew me away and I saw details that I originally missed that made me backtrack. trust me, you won't be disappointed here

    Amazing book!!!

    WOW!! What an amazing book!!! The pitures where rich, ditaled and amusing, with interesting comments by the directors and artists. I also enjoyed seeing scetches of the caracters in the begining of caracter developement and then what they looked like in the movie.And the painings of the landscapes are truely gorgeous!!! But I just have one little commplaint:well I know Hiccup is the main caracter and in his section he as 40 pics (or rather scetches) but poor Astrid has only 11 or 13 pictures!!! And if one of your favorite characters from the movie is Astrid you might be a little disapointed, like I was. But on a whole this book is sipply wonderful and a must have for all real How To Train Your Dragon fans!!! Also you might want to consider getting the soundtrack to the movie like I did and let my tell you I listen to those songs at least twice a day!!! They are sinply wonderful!!!!
