“How to Be a Pirate” by Cressida Cowell Review

How to Be a Pirate (Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, #2)How to Be a Pirate by Cressida Cowell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This one was more powerful than the first book in the series (incredible as that may seem). Our hero Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III gets into even deeper life-and-death troubles, as he learns to sword fight and grow selfless for his future tribe. The three epic battle scenes were crazy good and terribly engaging. The humor was infectious, and the depth at the end hit home hard. The first book taught the meaning of heroism, this one teaches the folly of greed and the glory of self-denial. Give Cressida Cowell a huge hand of applause, to pull of beauty and crazy humor in a kid’s book that some grown-ups would do well to take to heart.
