The Isle of Berk is under threat. Hiccup’s latest challenge is to stop the volcano from exploding …To do so he must rescue the Fire Egg which has been stolen and return it to the Volcano and outwit the sword-claws of the Exterminators. Plenty of new and hilarious predicaments for the great Viking Hero await the reader.

THE STORY CONTINUES in the fifth 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. Someone has stolen the Fire Egg.

'exuberantly illustrated ... laugh out-loud books, they will convert even the most relcutant reader to take their first dip.'
'a hilarious and gripping adventure, beautifully paced and studded with great dramatic scenes.'
'Cowell writes laugh-out-loud books with plenty of boy appeal ... Cowell's anarchic drawings suit the slapstick humour.'
'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
'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'
