    In How to Ride a Dragon's Storm, the seventh book in Cressida Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon series, Hiccup looks into the knotty question of who discovered America. As usual, his progress is hampered by various obstacles including murderous mountains, hooligan tribes and hairy swimming trunks, but, thankfully, Hiccup cheats death by a whisker in order to tell his tale. A great book for boys and girls full of fidgets!
