Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Read the HILARIOUS books that inspired the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films!

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup's father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the Hope and the Heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne - but most of the time Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy, finding it hard to be a Hero.

When we last left Hiccup things were getting very dark indeed. The Dragon Rebellion has begun. Snotlout is the new Chief of the Hooligan Tribe. Stoick has been banished and given the Slavemark. And Alvin the Treacherous has EIGHT of the King's Lost Things, and has been proclaimed the new King of the Wilderwest ... But what can Hiccup do, now all alone and in exile, hunted by both humans and dragons? Can he find the Dragon Jewel, mankind's last and only hope and become the Hero once again?

Horn Book Review

In this tenth installment, Hiccup, Toothless, and the Wodensfang quest to find the Lost Things before King Alvin and his witch mother, Excellinor, do. With only the Dragon Jewel left to find, the three break into Prison Darkheart to rescue Hiccup's father. Scary dragons, unsettling questions, and several ambushes by Hiccup's mother mix well with the silly tone and humorous black-and-white sketches. (c) Copyright 2014.
