How To Train Your Dragon 6: A Hero’s Guide to Deadly Dragons

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Review

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 Hairy Hooligans are just as good as the Bog Burglars – except Hiccup's dragon Toothless has eaten the book. Whoops!

So when Camicazi suggests stealing a copy from the Meathead Public Library, it seems like a good idea. However, 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?

The sixth instalment in this brilliant series also includes a dragonese dictionary for the superfan wanting to learn the language for themselves. There’s also a selection of dragon profiles, chronicling the vital statistics of the gaudy orange Stinkdragon, the variably-hued Mood Dragons, Driller Dragons, Red-Hot Itchyworms and many more.
