How To Train Your Dragon 8: How to Break A Dragon’s Heart

Publisher: Hodder Children’s Books

Review

Whilst searching for his lost friend Camicazi, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third and the Hooligan Tribe have ended up on Uglithug Island. Ug, the most brutal King in the World, comes to believe that Hiccup is in love with his beautiful yet sulky daughter Tantrum O’Ugerly, who has received a number of anonymous love letters from a potential beau. Trouble is, anyone of noble blood who wants to marry Tantrum must complete the Impossible Task on the Isle of Berserk, or die trying. Yet, when Hiccup and Fishlegs are unfortunately imprisoned by the Beserkers along with Tantrum’s many, many former fiances, Hiccup’s old enemy Alvin the Treacherous reappears – and he has a dark secret about the Lost Throne...

The eighth book in this fabulous, action-filled series explores the Viking world even further and weaves depth into Hiccup’s story all the more, with plenty of scary dragons, peril and even a bit of romance.

Author: Laura Ellen Anderson

Anderson’s writing is as zany as ever in this third instalment of the Amelia Fang series. It's all presented completely accessibly and with tons of humour. The book reads well on its own even if children haven’t read the previous two.
