How to Train Your Dragon #6: A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons

Long before he came to be remembered as the greatest Viking chieftain who ever lived, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was just a knock-kneed nerd who found it very hard to be a hero! In this sixth hysterical adventure, Hiccup finds himself lost in the Library Labyrinth. The Driller-Dragons, Madguts and Murderous, are on the prowl. It seems that Hiccup’s birthday won’t be the quiet affair he’d hoped for…

  • 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

  • Hiccup really wants books to be available for everyone for his birthday. But his dad thinks books are for wimps. This is amazing you should really read it.
