How to Train Your Dragon: How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse

By Cressida Cowell (Audiobook, 2013)
In his 4th sidesplitting adventure, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III must rescue his best friend, Fishlegs, from the deadly disease Vorpentitis. The only cure is rare and almost impossible to find...a potato. But where will Hiccup find such a thing? He'll have to dodge the terrible Sharkworms, battle Doomfangs, and outwit crazy Hooligans if he's going to be a Hero...again.

A fast paced plot, slapstick humor, witty dialogue and imaginative black and white illustrations enhance this exciting tale.

  • Praise for How to Speak Dragonese:
    "There is a lot of raucous humor and mock-heroic dialogue; ridiculous names add to the fun. The them of brains over brawn is well defined." (School Library Journal).

  • "Short chapters, clever slapstick, kid-pleasing character names (e.g., Fishlegs, Dogsbreath the Duhbrain) and goofy, childlike drawings will keep even reluctant readers turning the pages - and chuckling as they go." (Publishers Weekly).

  • Praise for How to Train Your Dragon:
    "Kids will hoot at the ridiculous names and sympathize with Hiccup's exasperation with his truly obstinate but strangely lovable dragon. A delightful read." (School Library Journal).

  • Praise for How to Be a Pirate:
    "Beneath it all, this is a semiserious exploration of what true heroism and leadership are all about....Rank it with Debi Gliori's Pure Dead series, a cut above Philip Ardagh's out and out slapstick." (Kirkus).
