The Story
How to Ride a Dragon's Storm (How to Train Your Dragon #7)—Book Review

What starts as the annual Intertribal Friendly Swimming Race turns into anything but when Hiccup and his friends are kidnapped by Norbert the Nutjob. The leader of the Hysterics Tribe needs Hiccup to help him navigate his ship to America, where he is planning to found a great Empire called Nutjob-Land. Will Hiccup be able to outwit Norbert, escape from deadly Polar Serpents, battle an enormous Sea-Dragon with a grudge, and, make it back to Berk in time to win the race?
The Scoop
How to Ride a Dragon's Storm (How to Train Your Dragon #7)—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

The seventh installment of this wildly popular series is just as entertaining as its predecessors, with lots of action, adventure, humor, and a cast of endearing characters to grab the attention of reluctant readers. Readers can't help but root for Hiccup, an underdog with a sensitive side who has to endure taunting and name-calling from some of the boys in the Pirate Training Program. Demonstrating integrity, Hiccup keeps his promise to help slaves escape from Norbert's ship, even though it means he can't escape himself. As usual, Hiccup uses his wits and his sword fighting skills to find his own way to get out of dire situations and save the day. There are a few references to a character called "Big-Boobied Bertha" and the gigantic anatomy for which she was named, as well as some mild fantasy violence where the children's lives are threatened. Fans will look forward to following Hiccup's adventures as the series continues with How to Break a Dragon's Heat, scheduled to be released in November 2011.
