Set in a fictional Viking world, the popular How to Train Your Dragon series features Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III as a thoroughly likeable young protagonist, the only person of his tribe who is able to speak and understand Dragonese, the language of the dragons. The tribe trains the creatures as pets, and Hiccup, who is the chief’s son, has two of his own: Toothless (a hunting dragon) and Windwalker (a flying dragon).

In the eleventh installment of the series, How to Betray a Dragon’s Hero, Hiccup must recover the royal King’s Things from Alvin the Treacherous and reach the Tomorrow Land to claim the throne of King of the Wilderwest – all before Doomsday Yule.

Hiccup and the other members of the Company of the Dragonmark face enormous challenges to accomplish this. They must overcome the evil Witch Excellinor, her terrifying Vampire Spydragons, the deadly Ravenhunters and a possible traitor in Hiccup’s own camp – someone who could easily betray him.

Readers will be drawn in by this inventive, quirky and often amusing adventure epic which includes lots of action and danger plus plenty of twists and turns.

The last book of this series, which features the themes of loyalty, friendship and endurance, will soon be published.

This book (and the others we've read in this series) makes a great bedtime story book. The names make the kids laugh; most of the chapters end in a cliffhanger (which the kids find excruciating); and the size is just right: the chapters take about 5 to 10 minutes to read, and the book as a whole can be read in one circulation period. And the story is great, but nothing like the movie of the same name.
