The continuing adventures of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III whose Viking training brings him in contact with a pirate's treasure and the unsavory characters who want to find it. Very cute children's book about pirates, Vikings, and dragons (albeit not the kind you can ride around on) with high stakes and some nice morals. It's clearly a series for the younger reader, but it's entertaining enough for adults so that you're not completely bored when you're asked to read it for the eleventh time. Vikings are always good in my book and so, of course, are pirates.

A quick read/listen. Not as good as the first book but still an entertaining way to pass 3 hours while doing household chores. Toothless, Hiccup and Hiccup's best friend Fishlegs are for the most part the only voices of reason as tense moments, mayhem and adventure continues for the Hairy Hooligan tribe. The continuing lessons in 'dragon identification' are also a lot of fun.
