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.

The book I read was How to Twist a Dragons Tail. This book was about Hiccup a boy Viking. In this story hiccup has to save everyone because the volcano on Lava-Lout Island is going too erupted. If the volcano erupts a lot of killer dragon eggs will hatch. So hiccup and his friends bring a fire stone to the volcano to throw it in. But they are stopped by Alvin and the volcano erupts. The eggs hatched but hiccups dragon throws the stone in the volcano but the stone was not a stone, but an egg, the egg hatch and the dragon killed the other dragons. Know every one is safe, until the next adventure.

I would rate this book a five star *****. I recommend this book to anyone that like adventure books. This book was funny very. It was also surprising. I never new what was going to happen. It also creepy, creepy in a good way like this man dies twice and came back in this book. That is why I liked this book. ( )
