How to be a Pirate

This book is written by Cressida Cowell. The heros of this story are Hiccup* and his dragon Toothless, who are in a boat and the boat gets shipwrecked. He also went to the island of skullions (mad because skullions eat people alive !!) to find the treasure of Grimbeard the Ghastly.They also got attacked by outcasts, and got trapped in a cavern with Alvin attacking them. Hiccup came home from the cavern, and all the shutters of every house were closed (because the Hooligan tribe were migerable, because they lost Hiccup and Fishlegs),when someone noticed them they all paraded down the streets. The day later all became normal again.

I very highly recommend this book and the rest of the series because I love the scribbly pictures, and it is really well written.
