How To Train Your Dragon 7: How to Ride A Dragon’s Storm

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Review

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.

When Hiccup is kidnapped (wearing only a small, hairy pair of swimming trunks), he finds himself trapped on the ship 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 122 Wanderers off a ship without their terrifying captors noticing?

The seventh book in this adventure-filled, hilarious series is a must read for fans of dragons, fantasy and Vikings – as well as all of us who appreciate good friends and brilliant ideas in the nick of time.
