How to Train Your Dragon

The Dragons from the film

Find out about the dragons from the film, then design your own!


The Gronckle is the plug-ugly of the dragon world. But what it lacks in looks, it makes up for on the battle-field. They can be slow and, dare I say it, stupid – and sometimes they get so fat that they are unable to take off. They are also prone to dragon acne.

Dragon descriptions from ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell, Hodder Children’s Books, 2003.
