Hiccup Horrendous Haddock 111, master of all things Heroic, has a load of new challenges to complete…Now he must complete the Impossible Task, save Fishlegs from being fed to the Beast to and discover the secret of the Lost Throne. It is a lot for one Hero. Luckily, Hiccup has just what it takes to solve all this and more – even if his methods are, as usual, a bit unorthodox.
There’s a major animated film featuring Hiccup - How to train your Dragon - scheduled for March 2010 from Dreamworks.

THE STORY CONTINUES in the eighth volume of Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs...Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. Hiccup's memoirs look back to when Hiccup was just an ordinary boy, and finding it very hard to be a Hero. Hiccup must battle Berserks, dodge Scarers, complete the Impossible Task and save Fishlegs from being fed to the Beast! And all while being hunted down by an old enemy with a dark secret about the Lost Throne. What's a Hero to do?

'Cressida Cowell's splendid series about the nerdy Viking Hiccup and his tiny dragon Toothless remain perennial favourites, and the latest, How to Break a Dragon's Heart is not only funny, well written and thrilling, but also wise about what we owe those who love us.'
'If you haven't discovered Hiccup yet, you're missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children's literature.'
Julia Eccleshare, Guardian children's editor
'... full of charm ... imaginative and bursting with inventive, off-the-wall humour, making them great stories to be read aloud.'
'With consistently funny stories told in inventive language - including the opportunity to extend your knowledge of Dragonese - these books always entertain.'
Waterstone's Books Quarterly
PRAISE FOR HICCUP:
'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal Cowells anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.'
