How to Train Your Dragon: How to Speak Dragonese

The third installment in the How to Train Your Dragon series takes readers on another funny, action-filled adventure featuring Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III.

The story begins when Hiccup, his friend Fishlegs, and his cranky dragon Toothless get separated from their class during Boarding-an-Enemy-Ship practice. They accidentally board a prowling Roman galley intent on provoking war. When they rescue a tiny nanodragon, they uncover a plot to steal every dragon on the Isle of Berk!

This is just the start to an epic adventure that will have kids laughing from start to finish. As with the other books in the series, imaginative black-and-white illustrations enhance this exciting tale.

"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
"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
"How to Train Your Dragon is a delightful narrative caper... It offers a challenging read to 11-year-olds, and rewards reading aloud, especially for those who relish an element of theatre at story time."—Lindsey Fraser, Sunday Herald
"Raucous and slapstick...liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps."—The Financial Times
"[Cressida Cowell] puts a contemporary spin on the old brains over brawn moral and brings the story to a climax with a thrilling dragon duel. Lots for lots of different readers to enjoy."—Books for Keeps
