This is the one where they learn to ski, and Haddock has to steal a potato because he thinks Fishlegs is dying, coincidently finding the key that opens all locks and the ticking thing on the way. ( )

This is book four in Cressida Cowell's How to Train a Dragon series, and it is a worthy entry. These books are so fun on audio, narrated by David Tennant and will have you laughing out loud regardless of your age. I especially love the insults and the miscellaneous information, like the cures for common illnesses - my favorite: for common cold: "Stuff a small carrot up each nostril to stop a running nose. Remember to breathe through mouth." Be warned, the books are very different from the movies if you are already familiar with those. And be sure to start with book one. ( )

Hiccup must rescue his best friend, Fishlegs, from the deadly disease Vorpentitis by finding what is commonly thought of as a mythological vegetable: a potato. Another fun installment in a very entertaining series for children. David Tennant is a great reader for the audio-version. ( )

This is the fourth one in the series and the author is so consistent its unreal. Never tries to get clever, never does anything fancy, just entertains from cover to cover. A real joy to read. Just ordered the next one. ( )
