The Lovereading4Kids comment
Hiccup has a new set of challenges. This time he has to get back to Berk from America in record time, battle against the deadly Polarserpents and win the Inter-Tribal Friendly Swimming Race – which is not so friendly after all. Hiccup shows new talents not usually so necessary in a hero in this latest set of entertaining adventures.

THE STORY CONTINUES in the seventh 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 has three months, five days and six hours to discover America, get back to Berk, save his father, battle Polarserpents, AND win the annual Inter-Tribal Friendly Swimming Race. Can he do it?

'This fast paced adventure is packed with hilariously named characters and mythical monsters that will grab any young boys attention.'
'... full of charm ... imaginative and bursting with inventive, off-the-wall humour, making them great stories to be read aloud.'
'another triumph from the creative pen of Cressida Cowell.'
'Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it.'
Amanda Craig, The Times
'This book is great fun and has a Blackadderish sense of humour... full of the sort of jokes that will make schoolboys snigger.' -- Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times
'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal Cowells anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.'
'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'
