How To Train Your Dragon 2: How to Be A Pirate

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

As part of his hero training, heir to the Viking realm of Stoick the Vast, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third has just started pirate training with Gobber the Belch, the leader of the Pirate Training Programme. He’s not exactly enjoying being shouted at or drenched, but he figures he has to at least try his hand at swordfighting – if he’s going to be Chief one day, he has to find it in himself to be good at something besides having great ideas and talking to dragons.

Yet when the pirates discover a huge floating coffin, Hiccup begins the quest to find the treasure of his ancestors. Can Hiccup find Grimbeard the Ghastly's treasure before Alvin the Treacherous gets his sneaky hands on it?

The second in Cressida Cowell’s epic adventure series follows Hiccup as he hones his skills and starts to realise some of his power, and the legacy left to him by his Viking ancestors.

With as much humour and brilliant characterisation and world building as the first book, this is an excellent continuation of Hiccup’s tale.
