Publisher Comments:

It's Hiccup's birthday, but that's not going to keep him from getting into trouble. To save his dragon, Toothless, from being banished, Hiccup must sneak into the Meathead Public Library and steal the Viking's most sacred book. But the Vikings see books as a dangerous influence, and keep them locked up and under heavy guard. To save his friend, Hiccup must brave the Hairy Scary Librarian and his dreadful army of Meathead Warriors and face off against the formidable Driller-Dragons. Will he make it out and live to see his next birthday?

Synopsis:

To save his dragon, Toothless, from being banished, Hiccup must sneak into the Meathead Public Library and steal the Vikings' most sacred book. To save his friend, Hiccup must brave the Hairy Scary Librarian and his dreadful army, in this sixth adventure.

FrankSara, December 7, 2009 (view all comments by FrankSara)
All of the Hiccup books are tremendously good fun--disgusting humor for kids of all ages, and a subtle irony for the parents or older kids who read to the young ones. Pen & ink drawings add visual interest. Here we get to see Toothless infatuated with a pretty little compulsive liar. On a less-than-ideal 12th birthday, Hiccup and friends Fishlegs & Kamikazi battle new types of dragons and the Meathead's Hairy Scary Librarian for a chance at Viking's freedom of speech--access to the "public" library. This series is perfect for the young chapter-book readers of your family or anyone with a warped sense of humor.
