HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON: How to Steal a Dragonís Sword. By Cressida Cowell. For ages 8-14.
Fans of the series and the movie will find a great deal of entertainment in reading the ninth adventure from Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and his dragon, Toothless.
A dragon rebellion featuring Tonguetwisters and Vampire Ghouldeaths are attacking the Archipelago.
Can Hiccup save the day? To do so, heíll have to outwit a witch, beat his arch nemesis and, with one sword, battle an angry horde of dragons.
Whatís good: Compelling action and adventure, and that will keep even reluctant readers enthralled.
Whatís bad: After nine books, some of the content seems predictable.
