Product description

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.

Hiccup Haddock Horrendous the Third just wants a nice PEACEFUL birthday. But Hiccup’s dad wants to steal the prized How to Train Your Dragon book, and prove that his Hooligans are just as good as the Bog Burglars – except Hiccup’s dragon Toothless has EATEN it!

So when Camicazi suggests stealing a copy from the grim Meathead Public Library, it seems like a good idea. BUT IT ISN’T! The library is guarded by the Horrible Hairy Scary the Librarian, four hundred Meathead Warrior Guards AND their Driller-Dragons . . .

Will Hiccup survive – or is he DOOMED on his own birthday?

ALSO INCLUDES A DRAGONESE DICTIONARY!

How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks franchise starring Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill and the TV series, Riders of Berk, can be seen on CBeebies and Cartoon Network.

    Hiccup really wants books to be available for everyone for his birthday. But his dad thinks books are for wimps. This is amazing you should really read it.
