THE STORY CONTINUES in the third volume of Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs ...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. Climbing on to a Roman Dragon Rustling ship by mistake in your first 'Boarding an Enemy Ship' lesson is bad enough. But to then discover that Alvin the Treacherous is also on board proves to Hiccup he couldn't have been more wrong, especially when he steals his copy of How to Speak Dragonese. Can Hiccup save the dragons and the day?

My review of How to be a Pirate (How to Train Your Dragon #2)

Mom's note:  I just wanted to say that I have never seen my son so excited to read a book before.  He's very fast to listen to books on audio, but to actually sit down and read.....on his own??  It just doesn't happen.  But every time I turned around, he was sitting down reading this book.  He loves this series.  If you have a reluctant reader, I would definitely recommend this series!

Great review, Bransen. You will inspire a lot of boys to read this, I'm sure.

However what we have here is the translation but it's still great. Just like you I also liked Hiccup and I loved Toothless. You should read the next book because it's also full of adventures. I am about to read the fourth book now.

Waiting another review of yours.
