Don't miss a moment of the How to Train Your Dragon series, the bestselling, funny, action-packed books that inspired the hit movies!

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, and shines with Cressida Cowell's trademark blend of action, humor, heart, and engaging illustrations.

Just as great as the previous books. Highlights of this one included excerpts from Hiccup's notebook "How to Speak Dragonese" and the Song of the Nanodragon.

“However small we are, we should always fight for what we believe to be right. And I don’t mean fight with the power of our fists or the power of our swords…I mean the power of our brains and our thoughts and our dreams.

And as small and quiet and unimportant as our fighting may look, perhaps we might all work together…and break out of the prisons of our own making. Perhaps we might be able to keep this fierce and beautiful world of ours as free for all of us as it seemed to be on that blue afternoon of my childhood.”

(Dragonese to English translation is in parenthesis after Dragonese text). Dinner time / Dragon: Issa yuck-yuck (This is disgusting) / Dragon: Me na likeit di stinkfish. Issa yuck-yuck. Issa poo-poo. Issa doubly doubly yuck-yuck. (I don't like haddock. It's revolting. It's gross. It's really revolting.) / You: Okey dokey so questa yow eaty? (Alright then, so what WILL you eat?) / Dragon: Me eaty di miaowla... (I want to eat the cat) / You: (you can raise your voice now) NA EATY DI BUM-SUPPORT, NA EATY DI SLEEPY-SLAB PLUS DOUBLY DOUBLY NA EATY DI MIAOWLA! (Don't eat the chair, don't eat the bed and definitely don't eat the cat!)
