Horn Book Review

Training to become a pirate, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III proves his mettle again while hunting for his ancestor's famous treasure. As rightful heir, this unlikely hero triumphs over vicious beasts and humans by relying on luck, a bit of courage, and lots of heart. Humorous childlike illustrations and zany character names add laughs to this amusing book. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
