How to Train Your Dragon is one of my favorite kids' series. It's one of the few book series my son really enjoys. We all loved the movie, and we can't wait for How To Train Your Dragon 2 to be released in 2014.
Luckily, we can still get our fill of Hiccup and Toothless through the TV series Dragons: Riders of Berk. It airs on Cartoon Network; I've watched a few episodes with the kids and have enjoyed them immensely. Even though the series doesn't really follow the sequence of events in the the book series (the movie is also very different from the book series; I wonder what the sequel will be like!), it does introduce characters in the book series like Alvin and the Outcasts.
In fact, the only reason we don't watch more episodes is that we keep forget to record the episodes -- so it's good to know that Dragons: Riders of Berk is now available on DVD in a 2-part series. Each DVD has about a dozen episodes. Whether you're a fan of the movie, the books or the TV series, you're going to want to check these out!
