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.”


The Heroic Misadventures of Hiccup the Viking Rating:4

    I think that there have become to many ways of identifying as a gender. Personally if we could the less amount of terms that people have to memorize the better. Yes you might identify as more than one gender but after like the 15 term it just becomes too confusing. It's unfortunate that I have to say this but I get confused between one term and another even though they might be very similar I am totally supportive as identifying otherwise but it has become a little too much for the average person to comprehend

You know, 'cause they're on me for most of the time, they barely feel like they're there (unless they're sliding down or I run into something and hit them, I don't feel them. They're, like, a part of me now). that happens to me sometimes too!

    "Well... Maybe... your related to this 'Ink' in some way?" Now that I thought about it, Paperjam did look a little like Ink... But that one faded memory was hardly something to go on. ​(("I-I like baking... We could make cupcakes or something..." Paps always filled his house with sweets, and the local school's bake sale could've run alone on his donations.))
