Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this companion to the popular How to Train Your Dragon, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is now a pirate in training. The Hairy Hooligan tribe is off on another spine-tingling adventure, to find the long-lost treasure of his ancestor Grimbeard the Ghastly. Braving death, indentured servitude, and the ire of his shipmates, Hiccup proves himself the true heir of Grimbeard. Witty dialogue, slapstick humor, and energetic drawings make this action-packed tale perfect for anyone with a spirit of adventure.

Review:

"[T]he story is exciting and the author's drawings are very wry and amusing." Children's Literature

Review:

"The usual motifs of deceptive appearances, last-minute escapes, and the merits of inner worth are addressed with humor....Cheeky drawings in the style of grade-school doodles add to the general appeal of the tale." School Library Journal

Review:

"Quick wit and a heroic heart win out over brawn and bravado in this follow-up to How to Train Your Dragon." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Follows the further adventures and misadventures of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III as his Viking training continues and his father leads a stranger and the Hairy Hooligans to the Isle of Skullions in search of a pirate's treasure. Now available in paperback!

This book is incredabley good. I found it very hard to put it down after picking it up. It has pictures and words. sort of a scrapbook diary thing. There are many exciting moments and plenty of breathtakingly close shaves. If you liked diary of a wimpey kid, check this one out!
