How to Train Your Dragon #3: How to Speak Dragonese

Long ago in a fierce and frosty land, there lived a small and lonely Viking. Hiccup dreamed of being a great hero, but hero-training is a difficult job… and accidentally climbing onto a Roman Dragon-Rustling boat in your first ‘Boarding an Enemy Ship’ lesson is most definitely a BIG MISTAKE. Things go from bad to worse when Hiccup discovers that the baddie in charge of the ship is none other than fearsome Alvin the Treacherous. But when his trusty sidekick Toothless the dragon is captured, have-a-go hero Hiccup must save the dragons – and the day!

  • Laughs and thrills with our favourite nerdy hero
  • A wonderful mix of humour, suspense and excitement
  • Hilarious writing paired with witty pencil cartoons
  • Hiccup’s books are now major Hollywood films

  • This is awesome because Hiccup always uses brains not brawn. A great adventure.

    brill book, I thought it would be boyish but I found it really cool, MUST READ! u will have to read how to train your dragon, the first book to understand some things but the book explains lightly at the start. and Cressida (the author) is writing more books as we speak, so ENJOY!!!!!!! 10/10 for me.

  • I laughed and laughed at this book – the translations in the middle are the funniest. Toothless has no manners and Hiccup is still trying to train him whilst solving problems at the same time! It is so funny!
