A Viking lesson in pirating takes a strange turn when Hiccup and his best friend, Fishlegs, accidentally raid the wrong ship while trying to escape Sharkworms. The two lads rescue a tiny yet arrogant nanodragon named Ziggerastica, but then they are kidnapped as part of a vicious plot to steal every dragon on the Isle of Berk. Hiccup must rely on his tiny new friend—and his ability to speak Dragonese—to save the day … again!

The rollicking sequel to How to Train Your Dragon and How to Be a Pirate offers a fast-paced plot, slapstick humor, and witty dialogue.

Quotes & Awards

  • “There is a lot of raucous humor and mock-heroic dialogue; ridiculous names add to the fun…The broad humor of Hiccup’s misadventures will appeal to reluctant readers.”

    " After I saw the movie,How to Train your Dragon, I discovered it was based on a book series - so I found some of them and read them. I must say, the movie was completely different than the books; don't get me wrong, they are both really good. The books were much funnier and a lot more goes on. I enjoyed these laugh-out-loud books and would recommend them to a child who is interested in dragons, vikings, and fantasy. "
