How to Train Your Dragon: How to Ride a Dragon's Storm

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.

Trapped on The American Dream II with his friends Fishlegs and Camicazi, Hiccup must ESCAPE the barbarian Norbert the Nutjob, and somehow dodge the cruel Polar-serpents in the icy waters below.
If ONLY Hiccup hadn’t promised to help the Wanderer slaves on board escape too! HOW will Hiccup save himself, his friends and a hundred and twenty-two Wanderers off a ship WITHOUT their terrifying captors noticing?

'another triumph from the creative pen of Cressida Cowell.'

Scary, crazy... and very funny.
First News
[Cressida Cowell] puts a contemporary spin on the old brains over brawn moral and brings the story to a climax with a thrilling dragon duel. Lots for lots of different readers to enjoy.
Books for Keeps
How to Train Your Dragon is a delightful narrative caper... It offers a challenging read to 11-year-olds, and rewards reading aloud, especially for those who relish an element of theatre at story time.
Sunday Herald, Glasgow
A hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes
The Times
'... full of charm ... imaginative and bursting with inventive, off-the-wall humour, making them great stories to be read aloud.'

'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal Cowells anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.'
The Herald
'Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it.'
Amanda Craig, The Times
Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful.
Independent on Sunday
... raucous and slapstick ... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps.

CHILDREN'S BOOK OF THE WEEK: This book is great fun and has a Blackadderish sense of humour ... full of the sort of jokes that will make schoolboys snigger.
Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
Irresistably funny, exciting and endearing
