How to Train Your Dragon: How to Fight a Dragon's Fury Summary


How to Train Your Dragon: How to Fight a Dragon's Fury: Book 12 by Cressida Cowell

Read the HILARIOUS books that inspired the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films!

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup's father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the Hope and the Heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne - but most of the time Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy, finding it hard to be a Hero.

It is the Doomsday of Yule. At the end of this day, either the humans or the dragons will face extinction. Alvin the Treacherous is about to be crowned the King of the Wilderwest on the island of Tomorrow. His reign of terror will begin with the destruction of dragons everywhere.

The fate of the dragon world lies in the hands of one young boy: Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third. If Hiccup can't beat Alvin the Treacherous then the entire human AND dragon race will become extinct. The time has come to prove himself, once and for all. Will Hiccup - with the help of his friends Fishlegs, Camicazi and Toothless the dragon - finally be crowned KING? And will the dragons survive?

How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks franchise starring Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill and the TV series, Riders of Berk, can be seen on CBeebies and Cartoon Network.

How to Train Your Dragon: How to Fight a Dragon's Fury Reviews


There is a deep humanity to the novel's resolution, which understands that endings are not really endings at all, and that life contains a mixture of the good, the evil and the just plain ordinary. The best children's books make the world magical. As every child looks for Narnia in the back of a wardrobe, so I hope that, for years to come, children will see dragons all around them. How to fight a dragon's fury is a resounding finale, full of fire and smoke, love, honour and old fashioned thrills. It's a triumph. -- Philip Womack * The Daily Telegraph *
Very funny * Evening Echo (Cork) *
Praise for the series: Cressida Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon books fill every spread with scales and fangs and typographical jeux d'esprit * The Independent *
I am really sad this series has ended because it's my absolute favourite series. I have enjoyed all of Hiccup's adventures and really wish dragons were real; I would love to go into my garden and discover a Riproarer or maybe a triple-headed Deadly Shadow * The Guardian *
Brilliantly written * Woman's Way *
An epic finale -- Noah Sanders, aged 10 * Northern Scot Midweek Extra *
There are some really touching moments alongside rip roaring adventure...I am going to really miss Hiccup's dragon Toothless * South Wales Evening Post *
Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon books stand out not only for their humour, excitement, and startlingly vivid descriptive language, but also, more surprisingly, for their profound meditations on complex political, historical, emotional and moral themes. They incite children to reason and to question, and inspire their imagination and inquisitiveness. * Philosophy Now Magazine *
Cowell still writes these with pep and inventiveness * The Daily Telegraph *
If your child's already a fan they'll devour this in a few hours; if not, cancel all Christmas plans and prepare for some mammoth reading sessions * The School Run *
My children's book of the year... [How to Train Your Dragon] has kept a consistent flow of brilliant characters, jokes, stylish writing, illustrations and ideas - and the finale is tremendous. Her geeky, once-despised Viking hero, Hiccup, saves humanity (and dragons) from certain doom in an unpredictable, satisfying way. This series is one of the greatest ever written for those between eight and 12. Buy them all and your holidays will be blessed with perfect peace. -- Amanda Craig * The New Statesman *
Wihtout question, Cowell has crafted a modern classic. The world she has created, throwing readers back into a time when dragons and humans inhabited the same place, is every bit as consuming and deep as Harry's in Hogwarts ... And so the fight -- part Doctor Who, part biblical epic -- begins.gripping, a worthy end to something very special * The Big Issue *
Cressida Cowell won the Philosophy Now prize this year ... it turns out that the adventures of Hiccup, the Heroes and the dragons raise big questions about courage, parent-child relationships, friendship, bullying, what is means to be a boy and particularly, what is truly valuable. This opens with a sock-it-to-'em chapter and builds from there * The Sunday Times *
This book is awesome; a truly fitting finale for such an amazing series * The guardian.com *
Flaming good * Daily Express *
The future is in the hands of a popular hero, Hiccup, who'll make you laugh along the way. Superb illustrations, too. * Chase *
The story is full of excitement, danger, magic and triumph. This tremendous final adventure for Hiccup and his dragons is unmissable * The Week Junior *
[Toothless] is the world's most adorable dragon, and there are probably very few who would argue that * Express.co.uk *
With a story that soars and dips, twists and turns like a dragon's flight path, this is the brilliant final episode in a series that belongs on the bookshelves of every child who loves a turbulent thriller of a take * Daily Record *
If your children haven't discovered these brilliant stories yet, they're missing a trick. * Daily Express *
Now out in paperback is How to Fight a Dragon's Fury, the 12th and last in the series of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III's hilariously haphazard instruction manuals on how to be a hero the hard way * Evening Echo (Cork) *
This is my favourite book ever! It's about different types of dragons, how they behave and how to find them! ... I adore this book so much that I couldn't stop reading it! * The guardian.com *
