Product description

Can Hiccup find Grimbeard the Ghastly’s treasure before Alvin the Treacherous gets his sneaky hands on it? And if he opens a box that says DO NOT OPEN, will he live to tell the tale? In this rip-roaring adventure, hapless Hiccup – now training to be a pirate – encounters more hilarious thrills and spills, as he learns hard life lessons about swordfights, shipwrecks and homicidal dragons!

“If you haven’t discovered Hiccup yet, you’re missing out on one of the greatest inventions of modern children’s literature.” Julia Eccleshare

    This is the one where Hiccup finds he is bad at sword fighting because he is right handed. A great book.

    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and the Hairy Hooligan Tribe find an old coffin marked with the words : DO NOT OPEN. Can he save the tribe, find Grimbeard the Ghastly’s treasure, stop Alvin the Treacherous and get back before dinner? * * * * * again! How to Train Your Dragon is hilariously funny. Great for any age!
