Summary

Summary

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was a truly extraordinary Viking hero, warrior chieftain, awesome sword-fighter, and amateur naturalist. He was known throughout the land as the "Dragon Whisperer" on account of his power over the terrifying beasts. But it wasn't always like that.

This follow-up to the New York Times bestseller How to Train Your Dragon chronicles the further adventures and misadventures of Hiccup as his training continues and his father leads a stranger and the Hairy Hooligans to the Isle of Skullions in search of a pirate's treasure.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This book is great fun and has a Blackadderish sense of humor…Full of the sort of jokes that will make schoolboys snigger.” Sunday Times (London)
“Cowell is a new star in children’s fiction.” Times (London)
“A series of hair-raising, humorous escapades on the high seas…addressed with humor that is accessible to both reluctant and avid readers.” School Library Journal
“Cowell works very hard to envelop events in a mantle of farce…but beneath it all, this is a semiserious exploration of what true heroism and leadership are all about.” Kirkus Reviews
