Book three of the How To Train Your Dragon series. It was hilarious when Alvin was accidently telling his dragon to put him in the toilet and pick his nose while trying to speak dragonese. ( )

This series remains quirky and fun, a good break from doing reading for my dissertation. Hiccup and Toothless are the perfect characters to root for: underdogs who nevertheless come out on top. Still, there isn't much by way of character development and so on, so older readers might start to find themselves a little bored. I think I'll give it a good long break before I read another one, since they are charming and fun -- just very definitely aimed at kids. ( )

It was kinda easy to read and was short, it was perdictable and not really forth-coming ( )

He & Fishlegs where on "The Hopeful Puffin," a boat that they made for this task to thake a helmet from the fishermen a peasful tribe, they ended up getting lost then scared Sharkworms and end up on a Roman ship. these Romans are Dragonnappers. They luckaly make it back home. for the nextg days they got kidnapped and the Roman kidnappers dress up as the Bog-Burglarsthey did that so the two tribes would fight against each other and not suspect the Romans, if the Heir of the tribe was kidnapped. While they're kidnapped they get sent to a tower and meet the Hier Of The Bog-Burglars, Camicazi. Trying to escape, but not succeding the kids waited for Hiccup's dad's rescue party to come any minute, but never showed up. Close to death, in the arena with Sharkworms everywhere and Toothless comes to the rescue and they finaly escaped finally, and Hiccup's dad's rescue party came late.
