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.

Over on Lava-Lout Island, the volcano is ready to blow. Now Hiccup faces a terrifying Quest to Stop the Volcano Exploding, alongside his best friend Fishlegs and Humungously Hotshot the ex-Hero.

But not only is Lava-Lout Island full of EXTERMINATOR DRAGONS, Hiccup's ARCH ENEMY is also lurking - and he's seeking REVENGE!

Horn Book Review

In this fifth zany adventure about the very unlikely--and unlucky--hero, Hiccup finds himself protecting the Barbaric Archipelago from fiery demise at the claws of the Exterminator Dragons. These rare beasts seek the return of the sacred Fire-Stone. Amidst all the wackiness, the plot takes a while to get going. Cartoonish black-and-white illustrations enhance the humor of Hiccup's quest. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
