How To Train Your Dragon 4: How to Cheat A Dragon’s Curse

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Review

Hiccup's best friend Fishlegs thinks he has a nasty cold, but Hiccup’s grandfather Old Wrinkly has diagnosed . . . VORPENTITIS, caused by the sting of a Venomous Vorpent, which means that Fishlegs has until ten o’clock on Friday morning before he dies from the poison that is making its way to his heart.

The only antidote is the Vegetable-that-No-one-Dares-Name – the potato. But the only way for Hiccup to find the cure is to face Norbert the Nutjob and the terrifying Sea Dragon, the Doomfang. Can Hiccup survive the quest to save his best friend – and discover how to cheat a dragon's curse?

The fourth book in this wonderful series might put a beloved character in peril, but we know from the elderly Hiccup narrating the stories of his youth that that Hiccup will save the day. A thrilling instalment of the laugh-filled adventure which always favours the underdog.
