The 6th book in Cressida Cowell’s A Hero’s Guide to Deadly Dragons series is finally here! Kidzworld reviews The Heroic Misadventures of Hiccup the Viking.


Not Your Average Viking

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is as unViking-like as they come. His father, Stoick the Vast, O Hear His Name and Tremble Ugh Ugh, is chief of the Hooligan Tribe. And Hiccup is next in line to become the chief. Unfortunately, Hiccup doesn’t like violence and he doesn’t like to “burgle” (steal). Instead, Hiccup loves reading books. He’s even writing his own book: A Hero’s Guide to Deadly Dragons.


The Forbidden Library

Unfortunately for Hiccup, books are banned from the Vikings. All the books are locked away in the old, forbidden library which is guarded by Meathead Warrior Guards, Driller Dragons and, of course, the Hairy Scary Librarian. But when Hiccup’s dragon, Toothless, eats How to Train Your Dragon, the only accepted book in Viking society, Hiccup must get another copy before his father finds out. But the only place that would have another copy is the forbidden and heavily-guarded library.


Deadly Battles

Hiccup and his friends Fishlegs and Camicazi, along with their dragons, break into the old library. They fight a fierce sword fight against the Hairy Scary Librarian and run from the vicious Driller Dragons, only to face certain death over and over again.


The Bottom Line

The Heroic Misadventures of Hiccup the Viking is a great book once you get used to the way it’s written. It has lots of doodles and different fonts, as well as full pages that look like they were photocopied out of a kid’s journal. If you like the Vikings, don’t use this book as a study guide for school. The author admits that “Any relationship to any historical fact whatsoever is entirely coincidental.”
