How to Train Your Dragon #11: How to Betray a Dragon's Hero

Hurray! Hiccup is back for his eleventh adventure, and this time it’s seriously epic. The Vikings are hairier, the enemies are deadlier and the cartoons are the funniest yet. Hiccup is in hiding, but he still means to become King of the Wilderwest. Can he steal back the King’s Things before the Doomsday of Yule? Will he win the epic struggle for the crown? And is there a traitor in Hiccup’s camp who will betray them all? It’s dark and funny and thrilling. Shiver and laugh and hiccup along!

  • Laughs and thrills with our favourite nerdy hero
  • A wonderful mix of humour, suspense and excitement
  • Hilarious writing paired with witty pencil cartoons
  • Hiccup’s books are now major Hollywood films
