Another excellent tale from the pen/keyboard of Cressida Cowell. That's five in row. One of the most consistent story tellers that I've read anywhee. Book six now on order. ( )

It's interesting how the backstory from the first four books in the series is combined with the new material. Alvin the treacherous returns and bad things continue to happen to him as he is swallowed by a fire dragon. ( )

Hiccup encounters a legendary hero who turns out to be his mother's ex-boyfriend, and together they must prevent a volcano from erupting. ( )

Age of Child: Teen STAR Review Team, Be the Star You Are!™

Little Kid Reaction: Cressida Cowell's stories about Hiccup and his adventures are always extremely entertaining. There is a lot of humor involved, and the action progresses really quickly. The best aspect of this book though is that, even though it seems to be a children’s book, it’s actually quite a satisfying read for any reader of any age and any gender. Hiccup is a character people can relate to: an average boy who finds out that he is actually capable of doing wonders.
